If changing our method to delivering the plugins as source along
with the "core" release, then this would confuse our deployment
system for plugins.

http://forrest.apache.org/docs/plugins/usingPlugins.html#sources
"Forrest will try and retrieve a plugin from local source files
first, if that fails it will look on a remote distribution server."

So the user would never receive an updated version of a plugin.
