[hudson-dev] Aligment of plugin names


I raised an eclipse defect about aligning plugin names
( but I think it
warrants wider discussion.

As written in the bug report
Currently the our naming of plugins (even just within the core) seems
a bit "random".Not only is this randomness a bit ugly, it also breaks
the natural

Hudson BIRT Charts Plugin
JCaptcha Plugin
Hudson :: Maven 3 :: Plugin

I think we should agree on a preferred naming convention and re-align
our own plugins. This convention should be posted on the wiki, so
others have a chance to follow it.

I suggest we remove both "Hudson" and "plugin" from the name as that
information is redundant in the context of the update centre. which
would lead to names such as
* BIRT Charting
* JCaptcha
* Maven 3
* Windows slaves

I am not sure if this should be done at the source level or in the update
centre .

I know that sometimes the name is seen outside the context of plugin
centre, and there might be useful to have both "Hudson" and "plugin"
in the name, so perhaps an idea was to support reading a property like
"hudson.hint.displayname" (same style as the netbeans hints) from the
pom.xml and if present use that instead of the normal project name.

Best regards
