Plugin lifecycle management

Hi,

I read on several threads that there was no Maven support for plugin development.

Is there anything else we can use to manage our plugin lifecycle ? I.E. :

- How should we manage dependency with IntelliJ-CE
- How should we release the plugin (i.e. tag, build and deploy) ?

Thanks,

Gauthier

- Since plugins can use all libraries bundled with the IntelliJ IDEA distribution, it's often possible to write a plugin without any external dependencies, which is also good because it reduces the plugin download and installation size.
- If you do need external dependencies, you can simply check them in to the version control system.
- Building the plugin can be easily done with an Ant script.
