It would be great to have a Development category where we can ask technical questions, get help writing plugins, PR's, or information on low level details most users won't care about.
Two follow-up questions regarding plugin discussions:
If I release new plugin versions, would it be considered impolite to use the Announcements category? Or is it for Elastic company products only?
If there will be no Development category, should it be preferred as a plugin author to use the Ecosystem category instead? For example, I drop the deprecated river code and move plugin code to a standalone Java program, and I like to give an introduction about the change and how it works now. I assume this is a story for "Ecosystem"?
Both good questions. I'd prefer to use announcements to announce new plugin versions or client versions and ecosystem for discussions or questions about them.
Thanks for this suggestion and the discussion around it. We've created a new Development category now: https://discuss.elastic.co/c/development.
