Summary0004113: Redundant files
DescriptionWhen upgrading between major versions some Source and Template files have been renamed or are no longer present.

Currently the upgrader doesn't identify and delete these files. I think it would be good practice to do this.

Additionally the file versions area (Support and Credits > More Detailed) shows these files with latest version marked "??". It'd be nice to display a message instead informing the user that this file is no longer used and so can be deleted.

For example, 1.1's ModSettings.php is replaced by 2.0's ManageSettings.php

I agree this would be nice; I personally think this should even be done prior to 2.0 final because it's a 2.0 feature essentially not working in line with user expectations.

However I have no objections to deferring to 2.1.

Might be worth looking into, for 2.0 final.
IMHO it looks a bit unprofessional, this way.

This is in 2.1, should it not be in 2.0?
