Yes, I shouldn't have confused the issue about audio and media! I guess I just get annoyed when I go to mobile spec and it is labelled as "audio" :-) We can leave it as cordova-plugin-media so it matches the JS api name. Although, I think we are creating the same type of confusion if we rename capture to media-capture but I don't have a strong opinion on that. Plus, I see we are doing that for acceleration and compass as well. I guess now is as good a time as any to match the W3C names!

Also, where is FileTransfer?

Great! I like the spec-based names. I think I have the opposite thought as Becky. Our current media plugin doesn't follow the WebAudio spec at all. How about we call it cordova-media for now since that's what it's called in our docs, and then if we ever implement WebAudio, then we'll have the name available for that. Maybe we should even put it the spec-less category (unless there's some older spec that it was based off of?)

Just kicked up a quick wiki page to help vett this. I'm thinking we try to stay as close to the spec names as possible.

My only comment would be about media. Currently it just supports audio so perhaps codova-plugin-audio makes more sense and we can leave media open for the rewrite. Although, I do realize the api is labelled "media" so perhaps it would be too confusing to change the repo name. Just a thought.....

Before I go ahead with this, let's agree upon the repo names / which plugins to include.

Here's the proposed list:

Repos to create:

cordova-plugin-accelerometer cordova-plugin-battery cordova-plugin-camera cordova-plugin-capture cordova-plugin-compass cordova-plugin-contacts cordova-plugin-device cordova-plugin-file cordova-plugin-geolocation cordova-plugin-globalization cordova-plugin-logger cordova-plugin-media cordova-plugin-networkstatus cordova-plugin-notification cordova-plugin-splashscreen cordova-plugin-inappbrowser

Note that I have device and network status in this list. Plugins that delay ondeviceready just add themselves to channel.deviceReadyChannelsArray.

Plugins *not* getting their own Repo:

blackberry/plugin/java/app android/plugin/android/app android/plugin/android/storage errgen/plugin/errgen ios/plugin/ios/console (seems like this should be merged into the logger plugin) windowsphone/plugin/windowsphone/DOMStorage windowsphone/plugin/windowsphone/XHRPatch windowsphone/plugin/windowsphone/console iOS's CDVLocalStorage.m

Great! Sounds like an agreement :). I'll file an INFRA to get them created.

+1 on separate repos. It's the sane choice.

+1, I agree on the separate repositories. I still contend that nothing should need to be 'built' and there



NO dependencies on the plugins from cordova-js, ( aside from device.js + network.js which are both required pre device ready, and I think should remain in the cordova-js repo )

+1 for separate repositories. Should take a bit longer than

I'm in favor of discreet plugin repos. It shouldn't effect a release if we automate install/remove and add to the Coho tool... though perhaps this is a naive assumption.

As far as I can see, we can either have all core plugins in
