Given all of the discussion that has been going on surrounding Local Unit Web Sites (LUWS) and different unofficial websites, I think it would be great if the church could provide a plugin system for LUWS. The church could provide a testbed or test harness that could be used by developers to develop website plugins that could be made available to all units or a subset of units.
I could see it working something like the following:
- A testbed or test harness is provided to developers, along with a set of guidelines and standards
- The developer develops applications on the test system in accordance with policies and guidelines
- The developer flags the application as ready for approval
- Once audited/approved by appropriate officials, the plugin could be made available to LUWS and stored in an appropriate version control system
- Optionally, different units could participate in beta testing the plugins
- The developer could still make improvements and submit patches which could then be tested and/or approved by officials and pushed out to LUWS.
- Optionally, each plugin could be allowed/disallowed by the stake and/or ward
Admittedly, it would take some time to administer such a program, but given the time that has been put into different unofficial websites, this might be a great way to harness the energy and needs of individuals and units.

I agree with you on this. We have discussed creating a plugin architecture at length here but there are no definite plans as of yet. Currently, however, some people are doing some clever things with greasemonkey scripts or IE plugins
