The provisioning system should already
know about the sites and should be able to discover more.
Actually I missed in there where the
users said which plugin they wanted.
User should not have to accept a license
if the plugin is coming from a known/trusted site. Sites should be
ranked in this way
Restart may not be needed

Re: [equinox-dev] New Update Manager
UI : Your thoughts
Ok, here is some thoughts on the gui for installing a
new plugin. This is in keeping with the philosophy of keeping the simple
I wish there were a place where I could upload some docs and sample images
to make the point more clear, but i will just type some stuff for now.
clicks on 'Install new plugin' button
box with single text field asks to enter the url of pluign update site.
manager automatically gets the latest available version of the plugin.
the user to accept the license.
license accepted, then installs plugin and asks user to restart.
The update site url, etc are automatically saved by the program and user
doesnt need to give a 'name' along with the url as we have to do now.
Also no dialog box for confirming 'install all'. All user has to enter
is the url and accept the license.
the dialog in step 2 can have an 'advanced' button, which when selected
allows user to choose the exact version to install.
your thoughts? any compulsory steps in the install process we might be
missing this way?
