Default Plugs in Pantheon

Registered by Daniel Fore

This is an outline of some of the default plugs we would want to include with Pantheon. It does not include/exclude the possibility of additional plugs from other applications.

There is a deviantART group for mockups here: http://switchboard-plugs.deviantart.com/gallery/

Required for Luna:
All blueprints in https://blueprints.launchpad.net/pantheon-plugs that are marked Essential

Plugs with some existing code:
- Sharing: https://code.launchpad.net/~netherblood/+junk/sharing-plug
- Startup Apps: https://launchpad.net/plug-startup
- System Info: https://code.launchpad.net/~random-cpp/+junk/info-plug
- Appearance: https://code.launchpad.net/~mefrio-g/+junk/wallpaper-plug
- Plank: https://code.launchpad.net/~mefrio-g/+junk/plank-plug
- Default Apps: https://code.launchpad.net/~davidkron/+junk/default-apps-plug

# Discussion:
If we want to use the plug that I will write, we have to use my "tweaked" notify-osd.
Here is a branch of it, still needs packaging: https://code.launchpad.net/~gotwig/notify-osd/my-notify-osd -- Gotwig

Localization: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/pantheon-plugs/+spec/languages-locale-plug

[Packaging]
Something which is currently missing in most plugs is correct installation according to
http://elementaryos.org/docs/plugs
Sample cmake plug project: https://code.launchpad.net/~random-cpp/+junk/sample-cmake-plug

I'm going to mark this as implemented/superseded since there are individual blueprints/reports for new plugs
