What I mean is, that if a roundcube installation admin logs into RC, they can see all plugins that are installed (similar to about page), but also see if new versions are available, and maybe even update right from roundcube. Similar to wordpress and other software. It would highly improve user experience for roundcube plugins.

This doesn't need to exist now, but it would really be cool if this is at least possible.
