Hmmm ... It seems everything I said was not understood the way I
wanted to. So I'll try to explain myself better . I was talking about
creating somewhere (ASF repos, file attached to wiki, or somewhere
else) an index listing candidate files for downloading plugins. Just
that . Links would point to external website (e.g. t-h.o) just in a
way similar to requirements files including t-h.o URLs nowadays . The
benefit of using index file over requirements spec is mainly that it'd
be possible to state e.g. «try to download ThemeEngine from t-h.o
otherwise consider PyPI, else try unofficial Bitbucket repository,
...» . The index limited to the plugins we need to run Bloodhound . In
order to do so , afaics we could track versions of those index files
in ASF repos , isn't it ?

All this implies no foreign code in ASF repos as we'd be storing in
there only the index file we need , nothing else .

PS: Of course the perfect solution would be to implement support in
pip for installing packages in subfolders of Hg & Git repos ... but
