    Description

      It would be nice to have a directory, called something like plugins.d, which had the following structure:

      flume/
        bin/
        conf/
        lib/
        plugins.d/
          custom-source-1/
            custom-source-1-base.jar
            custom-source-1-ext.jar
          custom-interceptor-2/
            custom-interceptor-2-main.jar
            custom-interceptor-2-lib.jar
      

      This would make it easy for users to easily install new plugins (sources, sinks, interceptors, etc) and in the case of some conflict, they can easily be differentiated and moved out of the include path. This helps with management and debugging of plugin issues, and avoids the current requirement for users to add these plugins to their FLUME_CLASSPATH.
