Feature request #5414

no "New project" link in "User Plugins"

The instructions for adding a new plugin (at http://plugins.qgis.org/) say to register a new plugin at https://issues.qgis.org/projects/qgis-user-plugins , however this page does not include a "New project" link.

The work-around is to go to the root project page (https://issues.qgis.org/projects) and create a new top-level project, which someone will move under "User Plugins" project.

This is confusing because
1) No "New project" link on the page where it is expected
2) Author can hesitate to create a new top-level project (as happened to me)

The solution is to allow all registered user to create subprojects of "User Plugins".

For my own project (Loop Visible Layers), I can create a subproject (because I am manager) and I can also set it as a subproject of "User Plugins" (but I'm not sure this option was available when I created it initially or appeared after someone made my project a subproject or "User Plugins").

This is a duplicate of bug #5408 in django tracker. In the meantime I have updated the documentation at http://plugins.qgis.org/ to create a new project and make it a subproject of "User Plugins".

I confirm that as of today the described issue still stands...

I can confirm this too. I can create a sub project under my project (Locked Layers Manager) but I cannot create one under the User Plugins project. My plugin has been created as a top level project and will need moving.

I confirm this situation, there is no way of making a project as subproject of "Users Plugins".
