Ok, my post was too short.

The JOSM Wiki page is the list that JOSM uses to find plugins. The 
current link on the wiki page to the colorscheme plugin is 
http://www.tegmento.org/~cdaller/josm/colorscheme/colorscheme.jar - 
which leads to nowhere -> 404.

Most plugin sources are now in svn and at least some of the JOSM plugins 
provide their binaries (e.g. colorscheme.jar) directly at the SVN (I 
know it's not the "right thing" to put binaries in svn, but we currently 
don't have any better). This way you'll be able to download the plugin 
most of the time, which is *not* the case for the various outdating 
links to external web space.

So I'm not interested to put the current wiki page content into svn, but 
to link from the wiki to the binaries in svn and not to the external 
(missing) webspace.
