Allow unstable plugins in repository

  1. Duane Storey


    It would be nice to be able to use the WP plugin repository for the initial plugin development as well. Unfortunately, as soon as you do the first check-in, the plugin goes live as a download. Perhaps if the Stable tag isn't present in the readme.txt the plugin repository can be setup to not allow downloads? If people can search for those plugins, perhaps they can even offer to help develop the plugin as it's being created.

    I like part of the idea. But instead of not allowing the download at all, simply tell the user some how that the plug-in is experimental.

    Perhaps in a similar fashion as to the Firefox add-on site?

    So the up-loader should be able to mark the plug-in as stable or experimental when uploading.
