Importing existing ones makes sense. However, I'm not sure relying on a plugin is better than simply disabling PRs and encourage people to make a quick search to find out how to contribute.
I'd rather see the Foundation teaching & enforcing a single unified workflow to contribute to any Eclipse project. One using Bugzilla and Gerrit. This is the most helpful for reviewers, and helping reviewers is a way to increase reactivity on incoming reviews, then it is a way to increase contributions.
As a reviewer one some projects, I find it annoying to another sources of contributions. Monitoring Forums, mailing-lists, Bugzilla and Gerrit is enough.
As a Gerrit user, I also dislike the pull request mechanism (where commits are not amended, but sequenced in a branch) compared to Gerrit one (where commit gets amended until it's good enough to be merged).
