[Pulp-dev] Consolidating plugin listing on pulpproject.org for user clarity?

Hi Brian,

I agree with the problems identified.
I'm concerned that the same plugins have a different set of features
in Pulp 2 and Pulp 3, e.g, pulp_rpm. Having it just marked as compatible
with both Pulp 2 and Pulp 3 might create an assumption that the same
features are available for both Pulp 2 and Pulp 3.
Some plugins are separated or renamed, it's hard to mark them compatible or
not, e.g. Pulp 3 pulp_file should be marked as a part of Pulp 2 pulp_rpm?
Pulp 2 pulp_docker - a part of pulp_container in Pulp 3?

I wonder if we should keep pulp 2 and pulp 3 plugins separate, maybe on the
same page but not in the same table?
Alternatively, many footnotes with clarifications might help.
