I'm not sure I like this idea. I have no objections to scripts that are
not distributed with KiCad to be maintained in any manner the developer
see fit. I would prefer that any source code that gets distributed with
KiCad remain in the source repo.


Oliver, I assume that your goal is to increase the ease of making contributions to the footprint plug-in source. Is that accurate?

If so, maybe we could add a few targets to the KiCad source that allow Python devs to install plug-ins without compiling the full codebase. Would that help?
