Description

Plugin Manager appears to be arbitrarily excluding some plugins.

Example: In http://plugins.qgis.org/plugins/plugins.xml, I see no meaningful difference between the OpenLayers and New Memory Layers plugins. For some reason, Plugin Manager does not show OpenLayers plugin anywhere, but the New Memory Layers plugin shows under Get More.

I'm on QGIS 1.9 192e130.

most plugins have not yet been updated to work in the latest master revision, Openlayers is one of them. New memory layer is one of the few that has been updated so far.

You're saying that http://plugins.qgis.org/plugins/plugins.xml is not correct then? It says both plugins have the same maximum QGIS version.

Just for fun, I copied the OpenLayers plugin to C:\\OSGeo4W\\apps\\qgis-dev\\python\\plugins and restarted QGIS. OpenLayers now shows in Plugin Manager's Installed view. It's highlighted in red with the message "This plugin is incompatible with this version of QGIS Plugin designed for QGIS 1.7.4 - 1.99". However, per http://plugins.qgis.org/plugins/plugins.xml, New Memory Layers has the same maximum version (1.99), yet Plugin Manager doesn't flag it. If I'm on 1.9, why is that not greater than 1.7.4 or less than 1.99?

http://plugins.qgis.org/plugins/plugins.xml?qgis=2.0

?qgis=2.0 is what I was missing! In Plugin Manager > Settings, I double-clicked on the repository under Plugin repositories and copied the URL field, which omitted ?qgis=2.0. But I do see on the prior screen where it shows that query string.
