Users should see clearly which plugins are trusted (e.g. with a bold green tick). Avoid any pejorative term for others (e.g. "Untrusted")

[pluginmanager] show trusted plugins (fix #14916)


#1 Updated by Alexander Bruy almost 8 years ago

We need to have support for this in the Plugins site, e.g. by adding another (probably accessible only for admins) tag to plugins XML file. Once we will have this, we can add support in Plugin Manager

#2 Updated by Alessandro Pasotti almost 8 years ago

<trusted> attribute is now in the XML. Value can be True or False

#3 Updated by Alexander Bruy almost 8 years ago

Seems these changes case some troubles with pugin site, so for now we use older version without "trusted" attribute

  • Status changed from Open to Closed

I suggest to backport the trusted flag to the QGIS 2.14.4 LTR version as well.

Furthermore, it should be included on https://plugins.qgis.org/plugins/ as well, possibly with a help icon that explains what the trusted flag is about. Maybe "Trusted Author" is more meaningful to end users. See http://gis.stackexchange.com/questions/203116/what-does-the-trusted-flag-mean-for-qgis-plugins for a discussion about that.
