Configuration of Plugin and Theme Repository/ies
|Reported by:||hakre||Owned by:|
Currently the plugin and theme repositories are hardcoded into core code. The only way to intercept here is to write a plugin which needs to be installed therefore - which is a downside since the repositories are about plugins: you need to install a plugin to add a repository to install a plugin to ... (an endless self-reference with getting nothing done).
It would be very useful that an Administrator can configure / change the default repository and even add other repositories. This would be the same as with package managers in the linux world where you can add multiple repostories.
Plugin and Theme developers can then offer remote access to their repositories for example.
Or admistrators can offer access to their checked and verfified repositories, which can be a local one as well.
Can be as simple as a textbox with one repository per line.
