If there is really a need for that special unsupported plugin, then the best way 
to go would be that at least one of all those distributions, who currently 
maintains that plugin, "republishes" it somewhere (AFAIR 
projects.vdr-developer.org was invented for that?).

First step could be to apply all those patches that are required to get the 
plugin to work with current VDR *developer* versions.

If a plugin really is still needed by a bigger group of people, then it 
definitively needs to be maintained at some *central* place. It doesn't help if 
every distribution creates their own patches. It's much better to cooperate!
