    – Make compulsory for plugins’ authors to make a statement on the plugin page: the name and number of tables created
    – Make compulsory an option in the backend: to clear or keep data and tables on uninstall

    How hard can it be to grab the concept? It would show some respect to the Community. You have no idea how many corrupted products are out there in the repository.

    There’s no way to enforce those, so they won’t happen.
    Feel free to write a meta ticket about it, though.



    so they won’t happen.

    Very strange to say that, since WP itself is suggesting it, and I guess I’m not the only one who has had that thought. (Maybe it’s just a confirmation that they are more focused on useless stuff like Gutenberg)
    (btw, you trac links are always broken)



    Your comment was to “make it compulsory”. That’s the part that can’t be enforced. The hooks are available, but authors can choose whether to use them or not.
    It would be great if the author would give details about what the plugin affects and what tables are used, etc. before installation. But there isn’t a way to enforce any of it, so we have what currently exists.
    My Trac links are not broken; Trac is often down or slow.
