Improve Plugin Installation

Could we improve the Plugin installation via configure? My idea is that in the Extensions list (after using "find more extensions" ) you can activate "install" (checkbox) or "upgrade" for the plugins and then doing the activated actions with using the "Next" button. That way you could install/upgrade more than one extension at once, which would save a lot of time and nerves.

It would also cool if there would be a delete function for installed Plugins ...

This is a good idea to increase the usability of TWiki for administrators.

An alternative is to show just one checkbox for each extension, and two buttons on top and bottom: [ Install/Upgrade ] [ Uninstall ] selected extensions.

Oh, I like your idea more, that way it's easier to keep track of the chosen actions. It's better not to mix install and uninstall.

At the moment I'm very busy, but I could/like to have a look at it in about a month, if it has not been put in to practice by then ...
