Title: Re: [equinox-dev] New Update Manager UI : Your thoughts

True, but it can also be a policy of a plugin consumer to accept the licenses of trusted update sites. Then the consumer only has to determine which update sites will always be trusted.

In using equinox on the server side, the update sites will usually be in the same company.

The need for license acceptance is  typically a requirement discretion of the plugin provider and not the consumer of the plugins. So allowing the consumer to disable the license acceptance should only be optional at the discretion of the plugin provider.
