validate_{plugin-filename} (2 posts)

    I just wonder why WP2 is missing a validate_{plugin-filename} hook. This hook would be triggered before a plugin file of that name is activated (activate_{plugin-filename}). It may executes a predefined plugin function or using as argument the validation functon name that would check plugin requirements and WP compatibily issues.

    I consider such a hook as a must! Even more plugins are incompatible and it is really waste of time for users and developers.

    What do you think about?
