"Annoying" plugins on official list

Added by Richard Kuesters over 4 years ago

Hello all.

I don't know if it's all the same to you, but I think it is really anoying to have paid plugins in the plugins directory. Besides the issues around selling code that derivates from the GPLv2 License, I don't think they belong to the open directory. If they must have it's space, at least they must be tagged or go to another directory (let's say, marketplace?).

Thanks. Best regards,

Hi Javi!

Well, now there's another point that no one have questioned before: full compatibility with Redmine. I think you're right and non-Redmine native compatible plugins should be, indeed, axed from the directory. The others (payed ones, etc, etc); should get a tagging system and/or icons, which most of the users in this thread have agreed already.
