Some notes:
a) You aren't required to have plugins in OSM-SVN. External plugins are 
also supported, see https://josm.openstreetmap.de/wiki/Plugins , but SVN 
has some advantages (like translations).

b) If your code is an extension of Tracer plugin without breaking existing 
functionality, I'd vote for updating the existing plugin instead of a new 
one. If Tracer and Tracer2 can be joined I'd also would welcome that. It's 
confusing for users to have multiple plugins with the same goal.

c) Regarding shortcuts, have a look at
https://josm.openstreetmap.de/wiki/DevelopersGuide/ShortcutsList :-)

I also was no Java programmer before starting with JOSM. We wont cut your 
head if you make errors. Testing with multiple users sounds already like a 
very good approach.
