[forge-dev] Consolidating the Plugin Repositories

Hey Paul,

We already have plugin search capabilities in the forge plugin. Basically I
don't think we really need the XML repo because it's so close in
functionality to what's already there. I do want to keep the idea of
plugin-groups, but maybe tags is the answer there. Just let people provide
tags that are searchable along with name and description.

Try this out in Forge and you will see what I mean: (You may want to update
and build a new snapshot.)

$ forge find-plugin *
$ forge find-plugin seam
