true, but removal from core would mean the external plugin has to be created, maintained, tested, and documented by someone. If this is missing, the external plugin simply wil not appear. This is what happened with R. Once a provider is out and unmaintained, it becomes less visible, and less likely to attract attention. The work to bring it back to life, with all the above, will be much higher than when in core, and increasing over time. All the best. -- Paolo Cavallini - www.faunalia.eu QGIS & PostGIS courses: http://www.faunalia.eu/training.html https://www.google.com/trends/explore?date=all&geo=IT&q=qgis,arcgis _______________________________________________ QGIS-Developer mailing list QGIS-Developer@lists.osgeo.org List info: https://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/qgis-developer Unsubscribe: https://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/qgis-developer
