When did we start discussing these proposals on GitHub instead of the dev
list? That's kind of what the dev list is for, and I'm pretty sure it's not
the Apache Way to do this.

In fact, I wasn't aware that we were using our GitHub org for anything
until now.

It's only supported by android 5 webview (12% share right now), so I think
the plugin makes sense for now even if it's going to be deprecated in the
future and replaced by the browser battery status when more people have
android 5 or greater

But the discussion about this should be better on the cordova-discuss
