You as a user can thoroughly test the plugins you want to use and
report any problems to the upstream developers. Robin menitioned a few
tools you could use to do so.

I do that for a few plugins I am interested in. But regarding CALF I
have to say: I find them lacking quality in so may ways, that I don't
even bother and stopped using them at all. Basically every time one of
those plugins catches my interest I find it to not work the way I would
expect, so... I really don't get why so many people seem to like them -
must be because of their shiny GUIs or so. *shrugs*
