Hi b_r_subnash,

You're right. In this case, a feature is not mandatory. Because everything was deployed by the wsp file. At the begining, I would deploy with my feature the documentation thru a custom layout page and a custom entry in the site settings. But I do not implement it because some people can not accept that. So in the next version, I will delete it.

Thanks for your comment :)

Hi Gael,

I kind of  figured that, just wanted to make sure ... looking forward to your next version.

On similar line, is there a way u could package this custom field as a feature? Giving the user the ability to activate/deactivate it at site level as needed.
 I tried looking at various posts, just to get a hint on how this can be achieved.  But it looks like a complicated thing to do.

thanks,

Subhash
