I tried to fix pitfall mentioned by Gary and implement Paolo's
suggestion about adding
categories to plugin metadata.
Added new plugin metadata "category" which contain name of the menu/toolbar from
where plugin will be available. For example, Interpolation plugin will
category, fTools — "Vector" etc. This metadata used by Plugin Manager
additional text after plugin description .
It is not necessary to update all existing python plugins (but recommended), by
default if there is no category — "Plugins" category will be used. C++ plugins
should be recompiled because base QgsPlugin class was changed. I think this
if acceptable, most C++ plugins are core plugins.
Also I update reorganize-plugins branch in my fork .
Comments, suggestions are welcome
