Rails Plugin Question. Help Please..?

Hi,

I am confused a bit with Rails Plugins Procedure.

Here is my confusion...

I am using Netbeans 6.1 and happy with it. In case if i need any good
plugin,
then.. what should i do...

(1) Install it directly from website and put in vendors/plugins
directory...

OR

(2) I should copy the plugin (found in Vendors/plugins directory)
available with few online projects like Insoshi, Chukslist. etc..

Will both the methods work the same way... Or... will there be any
performance difference, if i copy straight from the website.

Pl. guide me.

Thanks

It doesn't matter how the plugin ends up in vendor/plugins.
