davew wrote:3. How can I tell what standards are for what versions of OCS? I see a number of notes about plugins being built against older versions, and so I'm having trouble figuring out what code I can use as a guide.

And though the learning curve is a bit steep, I highly recommend using Eclipse to step through your code--Once you get used to it, its much more efficient than putting echo's throughout your code. Also, if your plugin is submitting anything via AJAX, or you're posting to a remote server, you'll want to use FireBug or something similar to inspect server responses.
