This is probably stating the obvious, or maybe not.

Two features that are missing:

Uninstall theme from web admin interface
Update drupal core (says that feature is coming soon, but anyways)

If there is already a duplicate to this I may offer some suggestions.

Title: Uninstall Theme && Drupal Core Update » Allow themes to be removed via the update manager
Version: 7.0-rc3 » 8.x-dev
Component: install system » update.module

The issue for updating Drupal core is at #606592: Allow upgrading core with the update manager.

As for uninstalling themes, I assume you mean being able to remove them completely from the filesystem (so they don't even show up on the Appearance page). Not sure if there is an issue for that yet. I guess it would make sense since otherwise that page can really fill up if you have downloaded a bunch of themes in order to try them out.

"Needs work" means there is work already in progress, such as a patch. Which is not currently the case here :)

This is nowhere near completion, but it is somewhere to start. I might work on it some more, but no guarantees.

- I'm not sure this is a good idea, but I'm open to being convinced.

- However, can we please put our energy into fixing the nearly-critical bugs listed at before 7.0 ships?

- If we were to do this, the patch has a lot of problems:

A) Frequently refers to "modules" when trying to deal with themes.
B) Doesn't actually invoke the update manager at all to remove these files as the user that owns them.

I'm not going to spend the time on a more thorough review now given the impending 7.0 release and all the brokenness that still needs my attention. ;)

Sorry, I am somewhat new to drupal. What I was trying to do is get the quality assurance bot to test my patch, so I could get some feedback on it.

Since Drupal 7 is released and this issue is for Drupal 8, there is no longer anything specific to postpone it on. Moving to "needs work".

Let me see if I can implement this.

I'm sort of new to drupal development, so It probably won't be pretty.

Normally, all it would take with PHP is:

require_once 'delete_dir.php' (I have this library)

Patch attached. This is closer than I got last time, but still not working yet.

Component: update.module » system.module

Actually, I think this should go in the system module.

Version: 8.0.x-dev » 8.1.x-dev

Drupal 8.0.6 was released on April 6 and is the final bugfix release for the Drupal 8.0.x series. Drupal 8.0.x will not receive any further development aside from security fixes. Drupal 8.1.0-rc1 is now available and sites should prepare to update to 8.1.0.

Bug reports should be targeted against the 8.1.x-dev branch from now on, and new development or disruptive changes should be targeted against the 8.2.x-dev branch. For more information see the Drupal 8 minor version schedule and the Allowed changes during the Drupal 8 release cycle.
