FileMaker Plugin Registry

Since FileMaker 16 now exports a plugin "source" code with the DDR (even if the plugin is not present) for plugin script steps, it would be helpful to have a way to identify a plugin based upon this "source" code.  It would be immensely helpful if developers could provide this information. 

For reference the "source" code that I'm talking about is "FMmp" in the sample plugin source code.

In the interest of gathering this information, I whipped up a Google Form for data collection.  To reduce misuse, this form is entry-only.  Once created, there is no way to edit a record.  If the information changes over time (say, you would like users to go to a different URL), just make a new record.  I can't speak for everyone else, but FMPerception will likely be using the last record available for each source code.

At some later date, this may be expanded into a larger registry, but for now I'd just like to get some data.  Follow this link to fill out the form:

I don't have any interest in being the only person with access to this information, so if you would like to view the results, feel free to click here.

If there is some other registry, just point me to it, and I'll apologize for the distraction.

Thank you very much.

P.P.S.  Here's an example of how it looks when FMPerception knows about your plugin:
