Popular & high rated plugins automatically upgraded with newest WP version

    I'd love to see a dozen or so of the most popular and highly rated plugins are automatically upgraded with the next version of WordPress. That way we don't wait forever for the next plugin update (if it even updates at all) or have to fear annoying bugs or a white screen of death with our greatly needed and favorite plugins. Plugins that are picked will be the "Essential Plugins Package".

    Types of plugins to automatically upgrade:
    -SEO
    -Advertising
    -Translator
    -Spell check
    -Image gallery/slider
    -Antivirus/login protection
    -Antispam
    -Social logins/commenting
    -Caching
    -Forums
    -Analytics/statistics
    -Exploit scanning/fixing
    -Dashboard/admin optimization
    -Plugin optimization/compatibility checker
    -Possibly shortcodes

    Plugins may be nominated to be in the "Essential Plugins Package". They picked will be based off completeness/having a wide variety of features. If there are two similar plugins that tie in high ratings, popularity, and quantity, they will be included in the package.

    This idea was inspired by four of my favorite plugins causing problems with the new version of WP, two of them causing the white screen of death.

    Plugins are ALWAYS at the behest of their devs. No can do.

  4. Darn. Oh well. I thought it was worth to throw the idea out, anyway...
