Subject Re: 3rd party Plugin code structure
Date Thu, 20 Dec 2012 20:18:34 GMT
So the docs in https://github.com/imhotep/plugman differ slightly from
https://github.com/alunny/cordova-plugin-spec

And the Readme in phonegap-plugin doesn't do a good job of pointing the
right place to look (other than indirectly through Shaz's post).

Shall I add a line to the readme pointing to
https://github.com/alunny/cordova-plugin-spec ?
