plugins which stopped working for some reason should (if possible) be excluded from the addon pack. like it happend with the facebook nodes due to changes in facebook api.
not sure how to do it because the old code base could come in handy to fix the problem. i just thought this could become a problem due to more and more abandoned plugin projects and we don’t want broken nodes in a release by default.
i include myself here of course with the out-of-date firmata plugin.
