Because I wasn't very clear, also plasmate is called the repository which will 
contain the plasmate IDE and the kdevplatform plugins, which used to be
inside the plasmate IDE and they will become plugins, so kdevelop could use 
them. My suggestion(which wasn't very clear indeed) is to move some of them to 
kdevplatform repository once they are ready and they have been reviewed. For 
instance one of them could be a notes plugin
which as the name says :) the user keeps notes for his project.
The question is, would you like to see stuff like that moving to the 
kdevplatform repository? I could prepare a list with those and discuss further
on a more suitable thread.


P.S.: Also FYI my gsoc takes place in this[1] personal clone in the branch
