Hello there. Please see https://moodle.org/plugins/registerplugin.php where you can register your plugin, making sure it meets all the criteria first.

You could make it available via a link in Github first and post a link here to get some feedback from potential users. There are quite a few steps in getting your plugin approved and you might get soem feedback on what is necessary.

...it seems to me Marcus, this would not be an unreasonable requirement for all new plugins.

I agree with Marcus. I always post about the availability of my new plugins before they go live on the plugins database. Only a few people go and install it that way, but you get good feedback.

Also it is now really easy for users to add your plugin to their Moodle site, using the auto install feature. So you have to be triple sure your plugin doesn't do bad things. Unless you enjoy putting out fires.
