FAQ Topic: plugin support

I get asked fairly regularly about how plugins are going to work with ClassicPress.

Can we put together a succinct answer to this question that will be the foundation for a FAQ answer?

Example query: How does ClassicPress plan to manage plugins? Will there be a new plugin directory setup and managed? What about a decentralized approach?

This is a pretty general query that could mean several different things.

First is compatibility which is answered on our existing FAQ page:

Now for questions about a plugin directory. This discussion is just starting to take shape, and here is the best place to follow it or get involved if you want to help:

I expect that ClassicPress will one day have its own plugin directory, most likely under the corePress name. Until then we will support installing plugins and themes from the WP directory.
