Integrate plugin "Uninstall item" into the core

Disclaimer: I like the fact that additional features for GLPI are possible via plugins: this makes the GLPI core less bloated.

Why integrate a plugin into the GLPI Core? If the plugin does the job there is no need to make it part of GLPI.
If you think the plugin's features should be integrated into GLPI's core: please explain why it should be, which advantages it would brings, why the plugin-solution is not working (or badly).

Just because it's an essential functionality (not optional).

And it's allays a pity when a new version of GLPI is available but plugin has not been updated yet.

I don't see the features of that plugin as really essential (my opinion).

I understand the hassle of having an all new GLPI version (with lots of new features) available and unready plugins prevent you from installing it because it would means loosing features.

But please take into consideration that the time the GLPI core developer spends on updating the "Uninstall" features (only used by some) is as much time not spent on new core features (features for everybody).


Thank you for your answer.


The uninstall plugin is one of the most important.

This suggestion is a really good suggestion, and we should think about it
