I am referring to an older article on wpmu.org and as the comments are closed there, I'd like to resume the discussion here: https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/wpmu-administration-plugins/
I liked the idea of having administration plugins (back end plugins) in that folder.
I even went a step further and adapted this for another folder called: my-plugins that are only run on the main blog.
The question is: is this approach outdated?
If not, how to combine it with the wordpress plugin updates and the wpmu.dev plugin-updater-notification-plugin?
I'd love to hear some thoughts on this...
