As I said before: This is not a good approach to this task. Enforcing a 
project layout and a file manager on database projects is simply a no-go.

What about projects that need a build manager (and hence the associated file 
manager)? Those simply cannot be used with your approach!

Instead, make your plugin a proper standalone plugin that adds the required 
stuff as a projectkcm and makes it possible to use it independently from the 
file manager plugin.

Do you need the account for a scratchbox? I thought one can create a 
scratchbox without a developer account?
