I want to create a patch or any sort of tool that would allow for developers who use my plugin to apply the changes to the wireshark releases. I've looked at this document http://www.wireshark.org/docs/wsdg_html_chunked/ChSrcContribute.html
Now that would be suffice, but it means the developers would apply the patch, then compile wireshark with the made-changes. I don't want them to have to compile it.
So my question is, is there anyway to create a patch that they can apply to their install of wireshark?
Edit: just to clarify further: essentially what I want to implement is a situation where a developer who has wireshark already simply grabs the patch(whether it be an rpm or whatever) from a git repo and installs the plugin to their copy of wireshark through that...

The beauty of a plugin is that it is an self contained piece of code, so why not distribute that? But remember to also distribute the source code, as per GPL.
