Well, there's all sorts of plugins - small ones that only implement one
function as well as big ones, like the Forum or Media Gallery. They have
quite different requirements, obviously.

The Plugin Toolkit was meant as a starting point for plugin development:


It could use some work, but at least it gives you a skeleton plugin to
start with.

Of course, our documentation of the Plugin API is in desperate need of
on overhaul, which doesn't exactly make it easier to get into plugin
development ...
