There is no global answer for this because it is up to the plugin developer
to decide to support their plugin on either of the two projects. We are
working with a bunch of plugin writers who are trying to do that. In the
case where the plugin writer is not planning on supporting their plugin going
forward in Hudson, we are working with our customers to possibly provide
support. Our goal is to make our users happy and if there is a plugin that
is popular/widely used that needs support or advancement, my team will pick
that up and provide that support.
So while there is not a single answer for all plugins, if there are any that
you are concerned about, you should let us know. Susan has posted a list of
the initial plugins that we are certifying with each Hudson build, and we
will continue to add more plugins to that list.
Let me know if you have any additional questions.
