FS#2463 manager.dat: "url=" gets not updated if plugin is updated/re-installed from new source
I discovered this after creating a new release of the MetaHeaders plugin. Chi was the old maintainer. The plugin was installed on one of my Wikis by using the plugin manager with his download URL. However, the URL has changed since I am the new maintainer. But the plugin manager does update the plugin itself but not the download source when using a new URL.
====== How to reproduce ======
1. Install the old MetaHeaders release on a new wiki from "http://cloud.github.com/downloads/chimeric/dokuwiki-plugin-metaheaders/plugin-metaheaders.tgz". Go to "/lib/plugins/metaheaders" to list the existing files.
2. Update the plugin to the current release by using "http://andreas-haerter.com/downloads/dokuwiki-plugin-metaheaders/latest". Go to "/lib/plugins/metaheaders". As you can see, new files where added (e.g. "CREDITS") and everything is up2date. However, manager.dat still stores the old URL instead of the new one. This means the "Update" button gets useless (or even worse: will do a downgrade instead of an update).
====== Expected result ======
If I update/re-install an existing plugin via plugin manager by using a new source/download URL, "url=" in manager.dat gets updated.
I've seen this happening with some other plugins as well.
