Don't re-install HelloDolly when updating WordPress
|Reported by:||JohnONolan||Owned by:|
HelloDolly is a quirky, fun part of WordPress. However if I'm running a site and I've chosen to delete the HelloDolly plugin from my install, then I do not want it forced on me every single time I run a WordPress core update. It's unexpected behaviour and a poor user experience.
Suggestion: Let's have the update script detect if HelloDolly exists and if it doesn't, skip installing the new HelloDolly files.
I appreciate that this is an annoying exception because HelloDolly is part of the complete WordPress package which we ship in updates - but I think it's worthy of some attention.
Unprompted traction for this is already evident after a single search: http://cl.ly/3UBx
