Sorry to bring up this suggestion again: If we put the plugins into SVN with 
there jar Files it would be one URL where the plugin locator can find all 
Yes I know svn is normally a source repository, but we don't have any other 
common place in the OSM project where every developer can write, every user 
can download and we have a versioning.
So I would really really vote for one sub-directory in the osm-svn and place 
all plugins there.
