Addon Control Panel

9 - Saving protected Addons in Sets

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Mark substantial (core) addons as 'protected'
2. Create a set (in my case 'Trade' or 'Auction') and save.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

I expect to save only the 'non-star'-marked addons in the set.
All 'protected' addons show up in this set, bloating the savedvariables,
making the 'protected'-thing somehow relative useless.

What version of the product are you using?


Do you have an error log of what happened?

no error.

Please provide any additional information below.

    This is an old issue, but there is a point. The only way to generate sets is to use the addon list, and the protected addons will always be on.

    The only problem i see is if you unprotect an addon, you now have to add it to all the sets you intended it to be in. I guess that is the reverse of what you have to do now.
