[QGIS-Developer] Including libraries issue (Trying to get Plugin Approval)

Hello everyone!

First of all I am not sure if this is the right place to talk about this so excuse me in that case.
I am a civil engineering student from a Brazilian university (UFV) and I've been working on a scholarship project of developing a Qgis plugin geometric road design, which will be also my graduation thesis. I am actually just in charge of continuing this project and trying to finish it since it started in qgis 2.x times. The project resides here: https://github.com/matheusfillipe/Topografia (https://link.getmailspring.com/link/59F3DFAA-BAB7-4B3A-86A6-5EADDF64E914@getmailspring.com/0?redirect=https%3A%2F%2Fgithub.com%2Fmatheusfillipe%2FTopografia&recipient=cWdpcy1kZXZlbG9wZXJAbGlzdHMub3NnZW8ub3Jn)

It is basically a tool to segment line layers, convert them to tables, creating circular and spiral curves over those layers, computing elevations over those points, defining cross sections and then computing volumes. I thought it would be nice to have it on a easier to install way for the students on my university that's why I wanted it on the repo. Maybe I am wrong about that and that's not the focus of the main qgis plugin repo, I would be open to suggested alternatives if that's the case.
The problem was that I used two libraries, PIL (Pillow, which is used as a fallback) and my own slightly modified fork of Pyqtgraph, which seems to be an issue for plugin approval: https://github.com/matheusfillipe/Topografia/issues/3 (https://link.getmailspring.com/link/59F3DFAA-BAB7-4B3A-86A6-5EADDF64E914@getmailspring.com/1?redirect=https%3A%2F%2Fgithub.com%2Fmatheusfillipe%2FTopografia%2Fissues%2F3&recipient=cWdpcy1kZXZlbG9wZXJAbGlzdHMub3NnZW8ub3Jn) I could still remove PIllow but I wont have enough time for working in a way to use the standard PyQtGraph since my scholarship is over and that part of the project is finished. As I said in the issue report I didn't see nothing against using libraries in the plugins page of Qgis if that's allowed by their respective license and PyQtGraph is MIT.
Anyway, my goal with this message is just to clarify if having this plugin on the standard qgis repository is possible and what is it lacking.
Thanks in advance!
