The EmptyPlugin somehow made it into the release tar ball.

~#tar -tf Foswiki-2.0.1.tgz | grep Empty                                                                                                                                                                                  [15:39]

I could not find the script to actually build a release tarball (would be nice to add that to the repository), and could therefore not fix it directly for future use.

The EmptyPlugin is considered part of our release documentation. That's where all the handler calls are documented. See System.PerlDoc

It needs to remain part of the release. Is there a problem with including it in the build?

The release process is documented in BuildingARelease It needs BuildContrib installed along with some other tools and builds from a git checkout. Not all the pieces to build are included in the tarball.

Thank you for linking to the build process. I noticed perceived the existance of the EmptyPlugin as an error, because the pm exists, but it can not be enabled, which makes it unique in the release.

# ./tools/configure -save -noprompt -set "{Plugins}{Enabled}{EmptyPlugin}"="1"
#### ERROR: {Plugins}{Enabled}{EmptyPlugin} was not found in any Config.spec

Really more unexpected behaviour than an error.

Updated the EmptyPlugin documentation topic to state that this plugin cannot be enabled. Also added a link to the PerlDoc page to get the plugin API documentation.
