@ctrueden Well In my non-specialist word plugin = .jar
I guess I meant macros regrouped in a .jar. How do I know that it is worth sharing them?

@nstifani it's not required to put scripts into a jar file for sharing them and uploading to an update site. That depends more on how many scripts that are and if you want to manage dependencies centrally.
How about making them available on github.com first, and announcing them on the forum or the wiki?

@tinevez :fireworks: :beers:
@nstifani Ah, I understand what you are asking now. Whether to share some work you did... my inclination is to say yes whenever possible—and no only when necessary (e.g., legal issues). As long as you communicate the status of the project, so users have the right expectations, I'd say go ahead and announce it.
E.g.: If it's something you did quickly, and do not have time to support, then certainly say that in the README.
This is how my group does it: https://github.com/uw-loci/loci-scripts
Not a lot there—my point is just the README, which hopefully makes clear that these are not general solutions for everyone, but which we share just in case they help.
