file structure of idea-7.0.M1b-dev

idea-7.0.M1b-dev , which I understand to be the plugin directory for plugin developers, has the following folders:

examples
help
lib
plugins
redist
tools

I take it that examples contains examples for plugins. I am wondering about the folder named plugins.

Inside it, there's a series of folders which contain zipped files. Those zipped files' names all start with "src_" .. so we have for instance I find a file named src_image.zip inside a folder named images.

Unzipping at least the src_image.zip file reveals a bunch of folders with source code inside them.

My question is- this plugins folder, are the source files in there examples of working plugins we could / should study?

Thanks in advance.

in fact they're the sources of some of the idea bundled plugins.
For example the svn plugin

Hello softwarevisualization,

Please also note that the root directory of the archive contains the file
"Plugin Development Readme.html", which describes the content of the development
kit.
