A debate has come up recently about development best practices within a group of friends.
Most of them are UX people that have installed plug-ins and modify CSS for their WP sites through sftp. Recently, however, some have moved to the multiuser framework.
In the past they've written their CSS and installed their plugins by ftp'ing the files to the WP sites. Now that they're moving to multiuser, it's not clear how to copy the plugins and copy the css themes.
Is it the best practice to have ftp or ssh access for the WordPress developers or is it best practice for them to install all the CSS and plugins via the WP UI?
Many of their unix sysadmins want to limit or eliminate the WP developers ssh/ftp access for security concerns.
Thoughts? What are the best practices?
