Upfront theme install

Why does WPMU Dev "hide" the Upfront theme framework, and make users FTP onto their site to remove? Technically the theme is not installed, but I still get update notices???
We should be able to COMPLETELY delete the theme just like other WP themes.
Is it a huge issue? - No. But it is very annoying.

    Hi tntanderson ,

    Hope you're doing well today!

    Well, the Upfront parent theme will not work alone, it always require a child theme. Upfront is not just a parent theme like Divi, that can work alone without any child theme, it can be considered as parent theme / framework / visual builder.

    So, as it will not work alone, the intention was don't create confusion to users and hide it from the Themes section to avoid users only activate Upfront without any child theme and think that the theme is not working or is some kind of bug.

    This was the main intention, however, all the suggestions from the community are always taken into consideration, I would like to suggest to open a separated topic under out Features and Feedback section, if other members show their support, I am sure that our developers will re-think in other ways to deal with this.

    Cheers, Luís
