Deprecating a Plugin

jieryn
Greetings,

Is there some way to mark a plugin as deprecated? Maybe so that it
won't show up as Available for new users in the update center, and
somehow shown as deprecated to existing users.

I'm not seeing anything in the javadoc or mail archives that would
suggest being able to deprecate a plugin.

Thanks,
-Jesse

There's no process for doing this - I believe it can be done in the update center generator code, though.

I think there will need to be several places to update, so I created
JENKINS-10212[1] to track it.

To omit a plugin from the update center, simply add plugin-deprecated label
on its wiki page..

https://wiki.jenkins-ci.org/label/plugin-deprecated

Nothing to alert existing users that I know of, other than visiting the
plugin's wiki page to see a note about deprecation.
