Core Modules (not uninstallable)
--------------------------------

         Key: MNT-1416
         URL: http://bugs.osuosl.org/browse/MNT-1416
     Project: Maintain
        Type: Improvement
  Components: Modules  
    Versions: 3.0    
    Reporter: Frederic Wenzel
 Assigned to: Frederic Wenzel 
    Priority: Urgent


The current module system allows installing and uninstalling every single module.

However, since more and more Maintain functionality is being implemented as a "module", some of this functionality will be vital to maintain working correctly. As useful as the module system is for writing a truly extensible piece of software, as bad the drawback would be if an admin uninstalled core Maintain functionality.

People can always break stuff willingly, but "standard ways" like "modules.php -u" should not let them do that.

Therefore, a new class Core_module, extending Module, with no additional methods will be implemented. Module uninstalling and disabling scripts will check if the triggered module is in fact a core module rather than a regular one and refuse removing it.

By that, Maintain will not provide this means to break itself anymore "out of the box".
