This will require padre packager (mostly you) to test all available plugins 
before releasing...

Another approach is to upload padre to unstable and fix plugins when they are 
broken. This should take less time on your side and get more people actively 
packaging padre plugins.

I grant you that this approach is more brutal, but given the available 
resources to package padre and its plugins, this may be the lesser of evils.

Thoughts ?

All the best
