Thank you for your answers !

One first thing : i'm fan of qgis and now it's quite ok to use it for my job. I know it's simple to criticize something, but it's difficult to do the job. Unfortunatly, i don't know how making the work i'm talking about...

Borys : I've uploaded the plugin in http://hub.qgis.org and made you and me admin of the plugin. the first commit is your original plugin. Is it ok for you ? I did it like that because i want to continue working on it ...

Then, i was talking about the plugin approuval and not about validation.... sorry. Maybe indicating in http://plugins.qgis.org/ something like
"Go to Qgis plugin repo and click on Share a plugin. The approuval procedure takes 2 weeks maximum. If not approuved, a e-mail will be sent to you." should be a good thing...

Then, when writing "Register your plugin at http://hub.qgis.org/projects/qgis-user-plugins. The user plugin section on hub can show plugin info, let users add issues/tickets for your plugin and to have just ONE repository for all qgis plugins", actually it's not possible. Project can only be created in http://hub.qgis.org/projects/. So is it possible to enable creating project in ..../qgis-user-plugins or just say "Register your plugin at http://hub.qgis.org/projects/ ...." ?
