Yep, ticket created by me to get it fixed, quickly hopefully. The plugin repository has been run very badly. I had to create a ticket to get Resilio Sync updated when the version in the repository was over a year old! And now this with a 32bit version put in there! It's not like it's the appstore with billions of software! Doesn't instill much confidence in a product when it's handled this badly.

Agreed--don't even think about trying the Nextcloud plugin (or, heaven forbid, Asigra). It really looks like they're more interested in having a long list than in having them actually be useful.

Is the whole plugin system also open source?
AFAIK, the system itself is open-source. Some of the plugins, however (Plex is certainly the most popular; Asigra also comes to mind) are not.

So, for nextcloud for example, is it not possible for people outside iX, like you, to contribute to making the nextcloud plugin up-to-snuff?

Sure it's possible: https://github.com/freenas/iocage-plugin-nextcloud/pull/13 (it merged cleanly when I submitted it over four months ago--they've made another commit to the plugin since then (which only serves to make the plugin more broken) that results in a conflict). In case the PR didn't ping the right people, I submitted a ticket a couple of weeks later, which has yet to be screened.

It's open source, but it's their repo, so they have to merge it.
