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

My requirement for server side equinox requires nothing more complicated than a boolean flag on the site saying if it is trusted or not.

I would also like to be able to have one trusted update site add more update sites.

This is because the server side runs almost completely without a user interface at all. And would require some kind of scheduled process, or remote console, to trigger an update.
