easy browse and install plugin within redmine instance
as redmine is benefit with lots of plugins available to extend/enhance redmine itself.
but i think one plugin wiki page is not good enough. what i preferred is kind of plugin store and user can easily browse and install plugin, just like jenkins/hudson plugin management (see attachment)
the user cases can be:
1. as an admin, i want to browse all available plugins under 'administration -> plugins', so that i can install the plugins with very few mouse click
(also note that, when install plugin, it should check the version compatiblity, for example, if the plugin only support redmine 1.x, then it should not be installable)
2. as an admin, i want to browse all installed plugins, so that i can uninstall or configure them easily
i think the plugin wiki page has already contains lot of plugin metadata that essential for a 'plugin store'...

This is a neat idea, but Jenkins plugins have a defined sandbox outside of which they have no control. Redmine plugins can change core functionality, and may have rake tasks, migrations, etc. to run. So I think this would be a lot more complicated.
