[openstack-dev] [fuel][plugins] Should we maintain example plugins?

IMHO it is important to keep plugin examples and keep testing them, very
valuable for plugin developers.
For example, I've encountered  the case where "plugin as role" feature
wasn't easily testable with fuel-qa because not compliant with the last
plugin data structure,
and more recently we've spotted a regression  with "vip-reservation"
feature introduced by a change in nailgun.
These kind of issues are time consuming for plugin developers and can/must
be avoided by testing them.
I don't even understand why the question is raised while fuel plugins are
supposed to be supported and more and more used , even by murano  ...
