Carry "dates" and times over to Plugins/Themes so you can see when it was installed/updated/removed.

Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)

It would be great to have some sort of administration "activity log" for Plugins/Themes so you can see if and when a plugin was updated last, when it was installed, and if one was deleted recently.

It would be even greater if there was some sort of "activity log". Where you could see logins, and then activity within WordPress such as "updated XX article", "delete YY menu item" and so on.

Giving a better picture of your WordPress site without needing to add access control or other plugins that would bog down the system.

This is well worth considering for an enhancement to core.

But until it is added to core, you should be aware that there are many (free) plugins that provide most (if not all) of the kind of logging you are asking for.

One such plugin that I use on several sites is WP User Activity. There are many others, so I recommend looking around before choosing one.
