Subject Re: Plugin Repos Created!
Date Tue, 26 Mar 2013 16:02:00 GMT
Here is what I suggest:

There is no content in those repos now (except for device-motion), not even a README.md. So
instead of pointing people to an empty repo, the folks here can do the initial extraction,
then we can advertise them and ask for help. The folks skilled at doing the initial extraction
are already here on the dev mailing list.

So defer advertising the empty plugin repos until they aren't empty.
