Requirements for Vetted Plugins

TOC?

Usability

Vetted plugins should work well out of the box, and should autoconf correctly in most cases. The Concise guide to plugin authoring describes a plugins methods autoconf and suggest.

Their graph should be significant and easy to comprehend. See the Guide for good plugin graphs.

Documentation

POD Style documentation in the plugin (or a separate file named <PLUGIN_NAME>.pod)

Examples on what information should be included in a plugin POD can be found in apache and buddyinfo (here contribution includes also example graph images for Munin Plugin Gallery :-).

Packaging

Vetted plugins shouldn't conflict with plugins in other packages as well (ie: plugins in munin-node or munin-plugins-extra).

These plugins can go in $(DESTDIR)/usr/share/munin/plugins.
