The Best Practical website now contains a list of standard and known-maintained extensions at http://bestpractical.com/rt/extensions.html. If you know of a maintained extension that doesn't show up there, send mail to webmaster at bestpractical.com.
Here is a list of RT extensions packaged and available from CPAN or other places.
Most of these extensions are prepared with Module::Install::RTx module, which allows you to package extension easily and quickly. People who would like to package their extensions should read the module's documentation.
Help maintain this page
Please sort and refactor this list; RT::Extension is a verbose but lexigraphically equivalent form of RTx. Also note, that links to a particular version of a module on search.cpan may rot when later versions are released, used a perldoc query instead.
