> plugin.yaml importing
> ---------------------
>                 Key: ARIA-118
>                 URL:
>             Project: AriaTosca
>          Issue Type: Story
>            Reporter: Ran Ziv
>            Assignee: D Jayachandran
>            Priority: Minor
>              Labels: plugins, wishlist
> Using a plugin currently requires a user first installs the plugin (using PluginManager),
then import the relevant plugin.yaml file in the service template file. The import will currently
likely point to a URL, or be a path relative to the service-template yaml file.
> Some ideas for improvement and easing the import;
>  - If a plugin contained its plugin.yaml as part of its wagon archive, then once installed,
users could import the yaml file more easily using a notation such as {{plugins/openstack.yaml}}
(or perhaps {{openstack.yaml}}, having the import mechanism iterate over plugins looking for
this resource file or so)
>  - The import mechanism could look for imports in the resource-storage as well - There
could be a directory on the resource-storage designated for storing global yaml files for
import, thereby simplifying reuse of yaml imports across service-templates.
>  - Perhaps ARIA should also support importing yaml files by using paths relative to the
service-template's package root (as opposed to only looking for paths relative to the current
yaml file)? Note that this could lead to ambiguities in some cases.
> Note that the last two don't necessarily have to do with plugins directly, but it's more
likely to be relevant for plugins as they're used across service-templates more often.
