I'll ask again since I didn't really got a satisfying answer the first time.

How is the plan that 3rd party jive applets will be installed on the Jive remote ?

If I have understand it corrected the Jive remote will download a jive bin file for all the stuff bundled with SlimServer when there is a new version available. But what a about third party code ?

Will the jive bin file downloaded from SlimServer overwrite any installed 3rd party applets so I have to install them again ?

Will the end users have to use a SD card or SSH into the Jive remote to install a 3rd party applet on the remote ?
Or will there be some automatic download mechanism from SlimServer also for 3rd party applets ?

The thing I'm a bit worried about is that it will be very complicated for a user to get a 3rd party Jive applet onto the remote. For example if I provide a Jive applet for my own SlimServer plugins.

I don't really care if I have to use a SD card or SSH for now, what I'm interested in is how this will work in the released product.

Sorry I've been slow replying to this question. I'll follow up in your thread in the developers forum.
