WordPress (plugin) updates do not warn about unknown plugins
|Reported by:||Quandary||Owned by:||matt|
The WordPress plugin update system does not notify the user if it could not find updates for a subset of plugins. That is, if the user has installed plugins not hosted with WordPress, they are not notified that new versions were not actually checked for. This can lead the user to believe that all of their plugins are up-to-date when they are not.
Fixing this will require both the server-side and the client to be updated. The WordPress update API will need to return data on which plugins it does not recognize as being hosted, and the WordPress installation will need to render that information so that the user understands which of his/her plugins are not automatically checked.
