I'll join the Plagger dev list but my suggestions would be

1) trimmed down core distro - just enough to be minimally useful
  (maybe just handle consuming and generating rss at first)
2) the website should have a front page that says "This is plagger -
  this is a screen shot - it can do this this and this"
3) A proper quick start - it took me a while to realise that there was
  no mod_perl handler or anything and plagger ran as a cron job
4) Descriptions of which each of the examples are - I guessed what I
  wanted was a planet but I have no idea what the other config files
5) Comment the config files to
6) Make the plagger script quieter - only spew errors out to STDERR. At
  the moment I've had to do

       plagger -c config.yaml >/dev/null 2>&1

  which means I'm missing any errors
7) A list of plugins and what they achieve. Each plugin should have
  example, commented config in their SYNOPSIS
8) Simple docs on how to create a plugin
9) Use File::ShareDir to put all the assets in and make that the
  default. If necessary give a plagger command line option to copy them
  to the current directory
10) A tutorial on how to write a new skin would be great. A list of
   other people's skins would also be fantastic
