<br>Forgive me if these have already been spelled out and I missed it, but with Earnie's vision for a jquery_plugin module...<br><br>Is the jquery_plugin module alerting users to updates of the JQuery plugins (that they would manually download (hopefully look at) and then upload)?
<br><br>Is there any automated connection between the jquery_plugin module and modules that require the plug-ins or are modules that require JQuery plugins expected to check to see if the plugin are in the files/jquery/ directory and alert the site's admin to use jquery_plugin to upload the plugin if it's not there?
