[Qgis-developer] Plugin development from amateur...

At the moment I am also working on upgrading a python plugin (Colour 
scale bar by bc-consult). Only a little testing is left and no changes 
to the user interface are made. Now the plugin should support linear 
interpolation (interpolates to ~200 color values if there are less than 
100 colors specified) and treat exact styles like discrete styles 
without interpolation.

The question is: should i make a new Plugin-Project or is there a way to 
update the old one for me. Or is it better to send the code to one which 
updates the plugin?

best whishes
