You should merge changes from the whole trunk into branch first and then 
test. If all goes well you can merge back into trunk. This step is not 
required but sometimes it sometimes highlights a change in trunk that 
affects your changes in the branch.

If there are manual install steps needed I don't think it's a good idea 
to claim that FOP is supported in 0.8 (hence change the minimal forrest 
version). We don't want support requests for this so it should be 
confident users only.

This will mean the autodownload will not work for this plugin and the 
user will need to perform all steps manually including downloading the 
plugin manually.
