  1. Configure the IIS on Windows
  2. Download the web font or PhoneGap extensions' zip package from the Github
  3. Launch the Brackets
  4. Click "File" > "Install Extension..."
  5. Input the URL of the web font or PhoneGap extensions' zip package
  6. Change the name of the zip package, and repeat the step 2 ~ 3

Result: The two extensions' zip package would be installed, there are two icons display on the Brackets panel

Expect: Only one extension's zip package should be installed.

Build: 0.22.6278

We need to have package.json files in the plugins later once the Extension publishing story is done.

Tried this issue with, it still reproduces when install the second time of for example web font extension with its package.json was edited to change the extension's name to other than default, then 2 web font extensions show up, though, this is not a normal operation.

Hi @Zhuyun - thanks for looking at this again - that's not a normal workflow and it's as designed that two packages with different ids are considered different extensions. So closing this as fixed.
