3. Single Branch Plugin Development (45 minutes)

4. Plugin API policy (10 minutes)

  • Desired outcome: Ensure it is in synch with the results of item 3 (if resolved)

  • Review the part of PluginsApiPolicies that addresses how plugin authors can best support more than one release while ensuring reliability.

5. TWiki Application Packaging (10 minutes)

  • Desired outcome: Compile requirements and needs
