Again I need to use my blog to answer some really bright guy who thought that the world would be poorer if his wisdom would not pollute the Drupal Planet. He is wrong: Drupal is not WordPress. We do not make compromises in security design. Any ways of updating/installing a module on the webserver which does not ask you a password does make such a compromise. Now, Drupal has an auto update but it stays secure. Joshua Rogers took on implementing that under the name of Plugin Manager as a Summer of Code project. He stayed with us and develops it. There was a call for core inclusion. A port has been made by swentel. What more do you want? I know what I want: Plugin Manager in core. Care to help?
