Yes you are right. I guess there will be a need to rely on documentation.
Perhaps comment the property project.required.plugins. 

#Do "forrest available-plugins" for a list of plug-in names
#Set "project.required.plugins" to [name]-[version] e.g IMSmanifest-0.6

There are two places for plugins/
1. In the forrest install - I don't think needs to create a plug-in 
folder until such time as the value is set in

2. In the project  forrest - Again, no need to create a folder if it's not 
used. Create it when the value is set in
