Subject Re: cordova-plugins repo release

Okay -- while I do agree with Braden -- in the interests of not debating
again, I'll concede to not publishing core plugins from a shared repo (if
for no other reason than for consistency with the other core plugins).  But
I think its still worth having a cordova-plugins repo for early
experiments/incubation period so you don't have to file a ticket with INFRA
before you even get started.

Seems the two published plugins are keyboard and statusbar, so we should
get INFRA tickets to make repos for those?
