Third Party Plugins on GoogleCode

Hi all,

Google Code is getting pretty close to shutting down, but we still have a
bunch of links to it on the ThirdPartyPlugins wiki page.

I've updated as many plugins that had a redirect or an 'official' link in
the landing page but there's still a bunch of plugins that haven't got an
official new home (either the author has abandoned it, or there's only some
'unofficial' mirrors of the code)

Since it would be a shame to lose some of these old plugins, I'd like to
propose a few options:
 * Point to the 'unofficial' mirror, where available
 * Pidgin to mirror the code for the old plugins
 * Point all the projects to (and hope that that doesn't get shut down
 * Ask the Guifications guys nicely if they'd host them as part of the

All of the options have their flaws, so not sure what you all think is the
best option.

Also, if you are one of the authors of the below plugins and you're on the
dev mailing list, can you port your code to somewhere and update the google
code page? BitBucket has a tool for importing and there's a big ol' "Export
to Github" button on the plugin page that'll make it easy to port there if
you want to.  You can also email the Google Code Shutdown Team to get an
auto-redirect on the project to its new home.


(hope this doesn't trip too many spam-blockers for too many links!)
