Is it Worth Disabling Redmine & Bitbucket Importers Plugins?

In the last week I see that the JIRA Importers Plugin has been updated, and that Redmine & Bitbucket import is now handled by separate plugins.

If I do not import issues from these systems then would it be beneficial to disable the plugins and thus save on resources? Is there any good reason *not* to disable them?

They currently display as 3rd party plugins... and I have a worry that they might be relisted as system plugins at some point - as happened with the DVCS connector (which also happens to be a plugin that I do not need).

Hi Mark,
I do not think resource wise it will make any difference to have these plugins enabled or disabled.
As such, it might be better to keep them enabled.

Plugins which are bundled with JIRA upon installation, will often get displayed as system plugins. Once these plugins get upgraded to another version than the bundled version, they will get displayed as 3rd party plugins instead.
