> Checkout the demo-plugin branch. It contains one additional commit, you can see its contents here: https://github.com/strongswan/strongswan/commit/648735c78ec7ca563b6ce52e65f54a44573973a7
> For future migration, just keep a single diff or a set of diffs that you can then apply on top of the checked out source code of the release you want to build.
> Regarding building just that plugin, you configure the source and then run "make" in the plugin's directory. But you shouldn't do that because of possible ABI changes between compiler versions, if you don't build it all in one swoop.

>> I’m looking for information on how to build a custom plugin. I can use the source from any of the provided plugins as a template, but I’m looking to guidance on how to integrate this in to the overall build process or building it outside of the strongswan build. Pros/cons. Also, tips on doing this in a way that simplifies migration to future strongswan updates would be very helpful.
