#3081 closed defect (invalid)

The 'installation' field has disappeared from the Plugins API

Description

It makes sense that the 'Installation' tab has been removed from the UI in the Plugin Directory and added as the first item in the FAQ instead.

The 'Installation' section in the plugin readme is still valid, and still present in the sample readme.

However, the installation field has also been removed from the Plugins API (version 1.0), which is a breaking change. This field should be reinstated. If it needs to be removed, then the API should get a version bump.

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

The Installation tab has not been removed. It was added back as part of the second major plugins change. Only plugins committed in the time where it was removed and added to the FAQ area will still have this. Any commit since then will add back both the tab and the API data, as it was before. But a commit has to happen for this to occur.
