Hi Boone,

I'd like us to figure out how to enable plugins on a user-by-user basis. This will allow us to vet certain advanced users and to make potentially dangerous plugins, like unfiltered MU (which I happen to need for the News blog right now, but which I don't want to enable on a site-wide basis) available to those users.

I seem to remember that Luke knows how to do this if you want to check in with him.

I talked to Luke and he said that they don't really have a great system. Perhaps the most viable option is to turn off the plugin page for most users, use Plugin Commander to limit availability of plugins to those that are safe for everyone, and have one of the admins activate other plugins on a case-by-case basis.

Thanks for speaking to Luke, but I'm loathe to depend on Plugin Commander -- I've found it to be a little unreliable in the past. Maybe we should wait on this . . . . hmmmm.
