Ross Gardler commented on FOR-739:

Plugins can now provide default settings in PLUGIN_HOME/

The values in these files can be overridden by a project in PROJECT_HOME/

However, the implementation is not yet complete and will break when we use plugins in-place
or move their location from build/plugins because this location is hard wired into ForrestConfUtils
(see Subversion commits on this issue).

Furthermore, in order for this to work there must be a *duplicate* setting of requried.forrest.plugins
in the projects - that is a duplicate setting to that found in
This is because plugins are still loaded by consulting for the list of
plugins but the default properties are loaded by examining the setting in

We therefore need to change the plugin loading mechanism so that it uses
