I still strongly disagree with ALL metadata being optional, unless it is automatically cleaned up if they never “finish” putting in required data.

However, that does not have a large impact on the name. I think we are now arguing between two reasonable proposals, and I am fine giving preference to the plugin naming because it does require the least amount of changes in current naming conventions.

I will leave it open this weekend for members of the project leadership to jump in if they want, but otherwise let’s go with Bro Plugin Manager (BPM) and bro-bpm.
