Subject Re: iOS only cordova-labs plugins (keyboard and statusbar, in plugins branch) - move to cordova-ios repo
Date Fri, 18 Oct 2013 17:45:55 GMT
I would hate to see plugins that are currently ios only get put there, and
then later have another platform supported. That would be ugly.

Can we at least insist that any plugin that goes in the ios platform have a
name like ios-* (likewise for other platforms)
