You should include only KDevelop/CodeBrowserFrontend. Just make
KDevelop/CodeBrowserFrontend inherit KDevelop/Plugin. Extensions
are always plugins.

Did you write the .desktop file for KDevelop/CodeBrowserFrontend

You might need the file "kdevelopcodebrowserfrontend.desktop"
with contents:
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Code Browser Frontend

Extension mechanism does this with less effort. It queries the trader and
then figures which plugin to return.
