    Hi Ryan,

    >...This module is included with the core...

    Does this mean that I ignore this module on GitHub? What I do with modules usually is list them in my GitHub client, per site, so if I see an update on GitHub I can read it's changes and then have the client download the changes.

    I assume when a module is "installed with the core" it is not updated in this way but is updated as part of the any /wire/ updates that happen.

    Am I correct here?

    Thanks in advance for your clarification and this is looow priority so I hope this email does not get seen by you on a weekend! Cheers, -Alan
