Subject Non-Git Plugin Dependencies
Date Wed, 04 Sep 2013 01:38:12 GMT
We were working on a redistribution of Cordova that included some plugins and ran into a use-case
not covered by the current plugin spec.[1]

Currently there are two ways to specify a dependency
1. Using a combination of url, commit and subdir which plugman will use to clone down a repo
and install
2. Set the url to ".", skip the commit and specify a subdir relative to the root of the repo.
Plugman then runs git-rev parse to find the root and install from there.

I would like to propose a third way which would be relative to the current install and not
use git at all
3. Skip the url, skip the commit and specify a subdir relative to the current plugin.xml.

This would allow us to distribute a version of cordova with plugins to anyone without an unnecessary
requirement on git (considering the plugins are fully installed)
