Testing Plugin Addons Section
I've seen several cases where developers solicit testers before publishing plugins in the forum. I think it is a very positive approach, one which benefits Vanilla at large as it improves the quality of supported plugins. I've participates in few of these and both the testing, the opportunity to help, and the learning that goes with it are great. But currently the testing is limited to the small number of people who are informally approached, and we all know that testing gets better with numbers. So in this light I propose that a special distinct "Testing" section for plugins will be sanctioned by Vanilla and all those who download plugins in that section both acknowledge that the plugins are not for production and honorably agree to test and provide feedback. A nice to have option would be to directly move plugins from that section to the current "production" plugin section once the plugins have "graduated".
I know developers can download from Github, but not all potential testers are developers, some are "just" admins;-)
