Description Brian J. Murrell 2015-10-20 07:19:15 EDT
Description of problem:
It would be nice to have a package of plugins and/or be able to add plugins to an RPM installed roundcubemail from the plugin repository.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. N/A

Actual results:
Limited plugins

Expected results:
Much wider selection of plugins

Additional info:
As it is currently distributed, roundcubemail has no plugins beyond the base set and no means of packaging additional plugins or even adding plugins to an existing installation.  This makes roundcube quite limited.

One solution is to simply add some of the useful plugins (my initial nominations would be roundcube/carddav, johndoh/contextmenu, johndoh/markasjunk2") from the plugin repository to the base roundcubemail package.

Another solution is similar to the above but to create a new subpackage called roundcubemail-plugins perhaps.

Yet another solution is to create a roundcubemail-devel package that can be installed which then allows the simple creation of additional plugin RPMs based on the plugin repository.

Being completely PHP ignorant, I am not sure which of the above are actually feasible, but one way or another, users need to be able to get a better selection of plugins than just what is in the base roundcube distribution for roundcube to be useful to a wider audience.

I also have a local vacation_sieve package.

Nice!  I will see if I can apply your example .spec to additional RC plugins.

Thanks for the pointer!

Each plugin need to be package separately, as with a specific review request.
