Thanks for this suggestion. In version 7.5 we are introducing the ability for the updater to check for discontinued official modules which are no longer in use, and to remove them during the update to 7.5.

We feel 7.5 is the right time to introduce this, due to the increased Ioncube requirements and added support for new PHP versions means the presence of historic code could cause errors in new environments.

If a discontinued module is activated it will not be considered for removal.
Any removals will be logged to the Activity Log. Any errors in the deletion will also be logged and emailed to full administrators.
