  Selector saves in the configuration what plugins should be loaded, but they don't reload after an initial failure, try this:
  Open KDvelop without git installed, you will have the "could not load git" error on the terminal, but the plugin will still be listed on the KPluginSelector (and the plugin object will be nullptr), then check the git plugin on the KPluginSelector and click ok. No message appears (on the terminal or on KDevelop).
  >> Besides that, I don't know *where* to put the messages that one plugin failed to load - IMO it should be inside of the KPluginSelector checkbox (click on the checkbox, plugin goes red saying that something is not right with it) but it don't have that option.
  > The way you added the message is fine for now. I simply want to have the message update itself after a plugin was (un)loaded and an error occurred.
  That's my point, the error only appear when we try to load the plugin in the start of kdevelop.
