Subject Re: Separate folder for 3rd-party plugins
Date Mon, 04 Apr 2016 11:33:02 GMT
I'm fine with not putting this into 3.0, if it's important for you to
release it ASAP and you see a risk with this addition. I myself don't
see any risks as long as change is made and reviewed carefully.

With "search_paths" property, the problem is that user has to
reconfigure it for every new plugin set he installs. So instead of
simplifying life for user we would complicate it. "search_paths"
property implies that there's single and predictable plugins set for
installation. My idea is to have directory structure agreement that
allows any number of separate plugin sets from any vendors.
