Description _ rkusterer 2005-09-26 17:21:57 UTC
In the Module Manager: Would it make sense to add a timestamp showing WHEN a
module was installed with the auto updater? Examples:

- It would help with trouble-shooting: If one of several modules I installed
turned out to be unstable and I need to get rid of it, I could at least
distinguish between updates installed before the date I experienced problems
(those are probably standard and not causing trouble) and after.

- Or, when, after I downloaded several things and I notice a new feature, I
don't always know which of the modules brought it (say, I want to recommend it
to somebody else). Then, there are standard and new modules with similar names
-- with a timestamp, I could at least narrow the list down to the newly
installed ones.

Old Module Manager (part of Autoupdate) was moved into contrib/modulemanager.
