Uninstall plugins - from GUI or command line
Actually, there is no documentation nor feature on gui to uninstall plugins.
A Ticket is already open for listing plugins. Being able to uninstall and/or disable them would be handy to troubleshoot weird issues. (Ex. #3570)

We have talked about a Jenkins-style plugin manager where we might be able to add/remove plugins on the fly. Currently we're relying on the system package manager for RPMs and bundler otherwise, so it's a bit trickier.
This does hint at another looming issue, which is that some plugins should have an uninstallation/purge procedure which removes certain data from Foreman's database. As plugins get more advanced, it's likely that they leave things like STI data in tables or foreign keys that might interfere with running of the standalone Foreman app.
