Any update on updating the plugins on CPR?

CPR still points to the old version and the CLI will not re-direct to the new location in
npm (only a warning) when the old id is specified.

Subject: Re: [Discuss] Plugins release

My thoughts on this are that trying to maintain two forks of all of our plugins going forward
will be more than we can handle.

If we go about it hastily then we risk publishing new versions that are broken, so it might
be more pragmatic to just admit we don't have the resources to maintain two configurations.

We can't even keep up with pull requests against plugin repos (there are currently 152 of
them), and I would say any extra time that we do have would be better spent going through
them rather than trying to juggle two separate configurations.

If CPR plugins never see another update, the new plugins can still be obtained from git, or
from dist/ or from "npm install", or from the .tgz directly from npm. Once obtained, you can
install from directory rather than registry.
