InstallPlugin Discussions

One of the ideas I saw in phpWebSite (but didn't actually try) was its ability to check for new modules, and selectively download/install them.

For TWiki, is this doable, or even desirable?

  • settable preference for download location (twiki.org, cpan.org, or some mirror)?
  • admin group setting
  • updating plugin descriptions, e.g.,
    • indicate whether it can be installed via the plugin
  • repackaging plugins for consistency
    • or offer both .zip and .tar.gz
  • dependency on TWiki version and other plugins
    • detecting, downloading, installing
  • CPAN and non-CPAN dependencies
    • detecting, downloading, installing
