I would suggest, that there is a possibility to add (hidden) plugins to the
wp.org-list for the auto-update feature of wordpress.
I'm using a not-gpl plugin, and I have to check manually, if there is an
update for that plugin. I don't like that.

Betreff: Re: [wp-hackers] Plugin licenses
Ok so basically, each and every plugin I encounter that says on it's
own page that it is not GPL compatible has to be removed? Start
prepping a team then, I'll be emailing some ;)
