[geeklog-devel] Upgrade function of the bundled plugins

Can anyone think of a scenario where we would need the upgrade function
of the bundled plugins, i.e. plugin_upgrade_xxx?

The install script will update plugins that are installed but disabled.

The only thing I can think of is if you've uninstalled a plugin and are
trying to reuse some old plugin data a couple of versions later. How
likely is that scenario?

The reason I'm asking is because these functions are such a pain to
write and I'm not sure if anyone's ever going to use them. Which is also
why they are not currently working (in CVS) for the Links, Polls, and

IMO, we should simply remove them (the functions for our five bundled
plugins, not the API function as such).

Any objections?

bye, Dirk
