Re: Moving Ubuntu SDK Plugin out of the QtCreator source package

Just some notes:
1. Any header in QtCreator sources is API (more precisely, any
class/function exported with macro PLUGINNAME_EXPORT). Any API can be
changed in minor or patch-level versions.
2. Thus, QtCreator designed to provide vendor-specific bundles with
defined set of plugins. Examples are: Mer SDK (will be merged to
upstream in version 2.9), Necessitas SDK (now merged to upstream), KDAB
version of QtCreator. But debian package manager can safely break this
scheme, if plugin dependecy is exact version of QtCreator, with minor
and patch level.
3. Once qtcreator-dev package will be created, it will be possible to
package 3rd-party plugins in ppa. Currently user should build 3rd-party
plugin manually on any OS, or use prebuilt version for exact QtCreator
version and platform.
4. Despite that plugins gallery have ~20 3rd-party plugins, most of them
are outdated, unmaintained and have unfinished feature set. I know 2
finished plugins and 2 are under active development in separate branch
of qt-project repository.
