Well,  they are plenty of gedit plugins out-there that are not
Gnome-signed, and are not deploy in any distributions. Currently all
these plugins live in different places (github, sourceforge,
googlecode, etc. ) the idea would be to have them all together. Also,
in gedit, many add-ons do not need to be software. They can be
style-themes, language files, you name it.

Also, there should be a clear distinction whether an addon is Gnome
approved (meaning it is reviewed, translated, probably hosted in the
gnome git somewhere) or the work of a freelance dev. Distributions are
welcome to keep  packaging  any of the addons, as they do now, but
normally the maintainer's cost of distributing 100 or more addons
would be too high (in my opinion). In this sense, I would love to have
an easy way of installing add-ons that does not require you to copy
files to some hidden directories. We should have a command line
gnome-addon install add-on-name, which will download and install the
add-on. That would be really neat in my opinion.
