Plugin List needs comments, rating and categories/tags
I really like the fact, that redmine.org provides a central list of all available redmine plugins. That makes finding plugins very easy.
However, for my opinion users should be able to rate and comment provided plugins there. So, evaluation of plugins will become also as easy as finding them.
I think a good example is http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ They ask users for general rating, compatibility and comments.
Update: I added "categories/tags" which is also really necessary right now, because no one has the time to look over all 235 available plugins. (Ok, I did and it took me one day. Which turned out to be profitable for me, because this way I found a plugin I really needed, which I never would have found with the text search.) I even would favor tags over categories.
(I hope I did not generate a duplicated topic. I used forum search before.)
plus there should be section on most popular downloads, or show the number of downloads done and be able to sort of the number of the downloads. This way, the users can figure out what are some of the important plugins they would need.

+1 there needs to be a better way to check for updates of plugins...
Great idea. Now it is very difficult to find useful plugin for redmine.
