I am currently th only active developer on Q-Rap, a Radio Planning plugin for QGis (source code at http://sourceforge.net/projects/qrap/). I recently updated it to work with Qgis version 2 (the upgrade on the Ubuntu repositories catch me a bit surprised as the Web-site still only talks about version 1.80). 

None the less, my main problem is that I am having trouble to have Q-Rap "stick": 
It loads successfully, however when I close Q-Gis down and open it up again the tool bar is not there.<BR>Q-Rap is still selected, but it would seem like the constructor and initGui is not run again when I open up QGis. so now I have to un select the Q-Rap plugin and selects it again ... and then it loads.
I had another look at the plugin-template and some other plugin implementations in the source code, but I <BR>really don't get it. Q-Rap creates its own new ToolBar on the QGis-interface.
(I had this problem in 1.8 as well ... in version 1.7 it worked fine)

Is this a bug in QGis or am I blind to what I am doing wrong?

On another topic;
On the Q-Rap mailing list I got the following message for Giovanni:

">> http://www.qgis.org/api/INSTALL.html ( http://www.qgis.org/api/INSTALL.html )
> ( http://www.qgis.org/api/INSTALL.html ) I doubt anyway that you will be able to make qrap works with the

>> cheers>> -- Giovanni --"

I also got a similar suggestion from Paolo Cavallini of the LinkedIn QuantumGIS group that I should be doing the same. The fact of the matter is that I would really like to do just that.

How does one go about it? Is there any-one that can help me with this? As I am currently the only active developer and should actually be spending my time on research and teaching.
(I have not yet try to compile it under windows.)

Kind Regards
Magdaleen Ballot.
