Yeah I agree that Liferay hosting the plugin themselves could be
preferable since it would allow them to ultimately have control over
the distribution of their IP.  My only hesitation with suggesting that
approach was that IIUC in order for a plugin to show up in the admin
console's list of available plugins it needs to be in a properly
arranged repository with the appropriate directory structure and
metadata files surrounding it.  I created an experimental plugin
repository for testing the Liferay plugin and it is straightforward
but not exactly trivial to setup and maintain.  Another reason I
suggested a centralized location like geronimoplugins.com is because
you currently cannot paste a URL to the host where plugins are offered
into the admin console -- you need to edit config.xml and then
Geronimo to add the host, or have it added to the master list of
repositories maintained at people.apache.org.  GERONIMO-2076 will
address that but not until version 1.1.2 at the earliest.
