Included in every EventGhost installation are several plugins for scheduling, several plugins for process monitoring, several plugins for network events, and so forth. I propose we create a list of plugins we agree are now obsolete and then move those plugins into EventGhost\obsolete\.
- Existing users with an existing config utilizing these plugins won't be affected, as the installer doesn't remove existing files. In the event that the user uninstalls or formats, they can easily retrieve the plugins they require from the "obsolete" folder.
- Users new and old alike won't get confused or waste time configuring obsolete plugins.
Thoughts? Preliminary lists of obsolete plugins?
I am personally against it.
I (actually for myself, because I'm creating builds) had earlier declared a "stop condition".
This means not only that no plugins are added, but even removed.
I think we need to do another major change.
At that worked Bitmonster, just before he left the project.

We can certainly do it differently (for example without wiki), but I think the basic idea is correct.
Once this feature will be functional, we can remove almost all the plugins and every user downloads only those plugins that he really needs.
