The SonarScanners download only required 3rd-party plugins


This means to prevent a download by scanner in any case for those plugins that are not relevant for analysis like i.e. monitoring or reporting plugins i must use something like that ?

Plugin-RequiredForLanguages: shouldneverhappen

Presumably the non-language-specific plugins for reporting, monitoring etc. have simply been forgotten !?
The ticket [SONAR-19996] - Jira - which was created because of
Restriction of the download of scanner plugins to those that are essentially needed has been closed as duplicate.

So the question is, how should plugin maintainers proceed if their plugin is not language-specific ?
This is also important because Sonarqube 10.5 will bring further changes.

Unfortunately the documentation has nothing on this.
