Hi there,

With my team we are currently working on contributing some extra features to the community. They often are extended behavior for activity modules. For instance, the possibility for students to get notifications when essay questions in a quiz have been graded.

We plan to separate these "addons" into individual local plugins dedicated to one component at a time.

My question is: Is it better to name them "local_modname" (ex: local_quiz, local_workshop...) or someting like "local_modnameaddons" (ex: local_quizaddons, local_workshopaddons...)

Thanks in advance
