Description

It would be good if the repository had a feature of looking for an index.html file in the plugin zip file and providing a link to this if it exists. See

http://www.qgis.org/wiki/Writing_Python_Plugins#Documentation

Two things that make this a bit difficult are
1) Security - there is not control on the contents of the HTML file
2) References - eg references to images within the index.html file.

Maybe there is a better way of meeting the underlying requirement, which is to be able to provide more comprehensive information about the plugin without installing it.

I think first we should define the structure, and add the feature to the Plugin Builder, then adding it to django should be straightforward.
