    • We've talked about this with Srokap, who has written a basic plugin that does this: https://github.com/Srokap/srokap_plugin_installer

    • Breet, how about my update services plugin? I developed with Cash and the plugins notify about new releases.

      Its safe and help the admins to keep the site up to date.

      Ps.: Cash talked about turn our plugin a core plugin, one year ago. But we never talked again.
