I am the current developer for the WHI OCTGN plug-in, and I'm going to stop updating it.  I would like to pass this project off to someone else, but I have gotten tired of maintaining it.  If you are interested, please contact me. 

At a minimum, it will need additional sets to be made as each new expansion is released.  This can be accomplished with no programming knowledge, since the set files are simply XML.

There are a number of other changes that can be made to make the plug-in more advanced, but they require you to write Python scripts.  I am not a programmer, didn't know Python, and still really don't, but I was able to muddle through by looking at some of the other OCTGN plug-ins (dB0's Star Wars, Doomtown, and Netrunner plug-ins are excellent examples).  I have it set up to support multiplayer in a rudimentary fashion (fulcrums, dominance), but the phases are set up for the 2 player game, and the phase stepping/notification code would need to be changed to properly support multiplayer.  Also, it doesn't lay out the capital boards well in 3+ player game when you use the "Setup Capital Board" function.

If anyone is willing to take over the plug in, I will provide you with the tools I've made to help automate the process.  OCTGN is receiving a big overhaul on Weds though, and the old game/set formats no longer work, so some of my tools have become obsolete.  I spent all my free time this weekend getting the plug in converted over to the new format, and have basically hated it so much and gotten so frustrated that I realized I don't want to work on it anymore.

I am a java developer. I don't know python, but I would be willing to take on the task of updating and working on the rules. I will take a look at the program tonight.

This is still a need (not cheap gold, but the WHI OCTGN dev).  Please PM me if you are willing to take this project over.  People expressed interest in this thread, and in the one on the OCTGN forums, but no one replied to my PMs when I actually tried to pass it off.  I have Cataclysm mostly done, but it will not be released unless someone takes it over and does some card scans.
