Thanks a lot for starting with the draft, it looks good!

My comments from a brief review:
- download count should be rather related to plugin versions, not
plugins - for more detailed stats
- in addition to user-readable name, there should be plugin's package
(i.e. internal) name which is unique among plugins
- the plugin could have two more attributes: active "stable" version
and active "development" (experimental) version. One of them can be
empty, because not all plugins will produce separate
stable/development versions. It should be then possible to change
active version to any version that has been uploaded. I think this is
better than having flags in plugin version model, because only one
stable/development version can be active at one time.

Btw. does anybody know how to deal with logins using osgeo ldap
server? E.g. is it necessary to have some permissions in order to
access it?
