From memory Shaun and Till were looking into this a while back, I am unsure how far they got though.
The problem I think is the multitude of server configurations out there, there really isn’t going to be an easy 1 stop solution for this.
However, I would love it too! With over 10 Mint installs it is very tiresome when several Pepper get updated.
Gimme a break Till, I thought we were past all this passive aggressive crap.
My exact reply to your original implementation:
I’m sorry but after much consideration I’ve decided that I will not be adding support for Sergeant Pepper to the Peppermill. Too small a percentage of Mint user’s would actually be able to take advantage of Sergeant Pepper and given that, the backdoor the implementation would offer to pirates is unacceptable.
The vast majority of Mint’s customers are on shared hosts which disable the
system()call or don’t allow PHP FTP access. As I said, very few would be able to use the Pepper, the potential risks don’t outweigh the gains.
Not to mention the amount of additional Forum posts and emails I would receive from user’s wanting to use your third-party Pepper despite their server’s not being able to. While not obligated to respond to each one (because they involve a third-party Pepper) I couldn’t just ignore them.
