Hmm... this is a reason why I think that python plugins inside qgis
sources are not a very good idea - it brings additional maintenance
cost for developers. When someone fixes a python plugin in qgis (and
isn't owner/maintainer of the plugin), he is supposed to notify also
author so he can upload updated version so that others can make use of
Am I making some sense?

IMO we shouldn't keep python plugins inside qgis sources (plugin
installer is the only one I would keep there) and just include some
good plugins directly to the release if it's really desired that
people get some plugins.

So in this situation I think Gary as the creator should upload new
version to repository...?
