Where can information about the plugin API be found?  The abrt-plugins
man page has very little information.  It basically just says to read
PLUGINS-HOWTO "in the documentation directory".  Which documentation
directory is that?  I don't see such a file in any of the abrt-*
packages.  (I expected to find it in abrt-devel, BTW.  That package
contains only 2 symlinks.  Where are the header files?  Are they not
needed by plugin authors?)
