Before we can host your plugin in the forge, there are a few rules we must ask you to follow:
  • follow the coding conventions (see below)
  • do not be misleading in terms of content (the code needs to do pretty much what the name and description say it does)
  • have a business-friendly license (the default license is LGPL3)
  • do not compete with existing SonarSource products (sorry, but we gotta pay the bills somehow)
  • receive +1’s from three voting members of the development list and no -1’s for the initial release

To keep your plugin in the forge, it must remain in compliance with everything on the first list and:

  • be maintained over time (meaning you should pay attention to the mailing lists and respond to bugs and API changes)

  • preferably receive at least one +1 from a voting member of the development mailing list for subsequent releases (although passing a vote by lazy consensus is allowed.)

If any of these requirements are not met, or stop being met (if, for example you change the license to one that’s not business-friendly) we may remove the plugin from the forge immediately
