how can some of the default confconsole plugins be removed when creating a new custom appliance with tkldev?

You can just remove them from the relevant part of the file tree. You'll find the plugins in /usr/lib/confconsole/plugins.d/

Note though, that unfortunately, because they aren't packaged separately (which we really should do) that future updates to Confconsole will replace them again.

Hi Jeremy,

at which step of build process do I have to remove the plugin files?

Which is the current document for developing a new appliance?

There is an assortment of docs on GitHub. There is a lot of content there, but hopefully it should be fairly readable and hopefully clear enough. If you have a specific question, please feel free to ask.

As to when to remove these files, I would do it in the main conf script - probably with a comment on why. The plugins are installed by the main confconsole package, so anytime after that is installed is fine. FYI, confconsole is noted in the (common base) plan and the plans are nearly the first step in the build process.
