      • Improve a plugin - will help people make specific useful contributions to the plugin of their choice.
        • We’ve selected a group of twenty-five plus plugins, and we’re preparing answers for them, so that if they can’t do it they’ll be able to look at our answers.
        • The idea is they start, they try it, and if they’re successful, great, and if not, they look in the back of the book. And there is the answer. And as a result of this there will be a new tutorial posted to focused on helping developers do these kinds of small improvements, small but valuable improvements to Jenkins plugins.
