As long as Akismet and Hello Dolly aren't unbundled (see #16838, #16033, #15769) the reinstall-on-core-upgrade behavior of the packaged Akismet and Hello plugins shipping with the core package should be eliminated.

If it's not feasible to undbundle for 3.2 for whatever reason, what about eliminating the reinstall-on-core-upgrade behavior (for Akismet and Hello Dolly)? I know that's been discussed, but I'm not sure what the current status of that idea/path is.

That's pretty much certain to happen.

In order to keep things simple, Leave this closed as it's a small component of the larger issue, This will be implemented when #14484 is implemented, They go hand-in-hand. Splitting discussion over multiple tickets causes more issues than it solves.

That other ticket looks much more complicated to me than just dumping Akismet and Hello Dolly on core upgrades.

But anyway, I congratulate if you keep traction to fix #14484 actively, so please go ahead. I can live with closing #14484 (if the issue doesn't get borked).
