Since few days / weeks it seems version 0.2.x of the plugin is not registered in the Apache Cordova registry (see the JSON payload returned here http://registry.cordova.io/org.apache.cordova.device).
Because we also use Phonegap Build to build our apps having the same version of plugins available in the Phonegap Build Plugin Registry and the Apache Cordova Publigin registry is required.
So, the Apache Cordova Registry should provide version 0.2.x of the device plugin.
It seems strange to remove old plugin versions from the Apache Cordova Registry because it will break several apps or force developers to upgrade their plugins which is not always advised or necessary.
Why do you deleted old plugin versions from the Apache Cordova Registry ?
For me a registry MUST keep old versions of packages even if those package are not maintained anymore.
