I've been asked to Hide the Publishing Feature for the farm in Sharepoint 2007.
Now I can go on the file system and change the feature definition but as we all know messing about on the 14 hive with files that dont belong to you is a nono.
I can't remember, probably because you can't do it, if it is possible to hide a feature, especially one that doesn't belong to you or can publishing just be removed ?
By removed I mean Hidden, not deactivated or uninstalled
If anyone can tell me if it's possible in another way to editing the file great, if you know its impossible a link to the WhitePaper that says don't be so stupid would also be good.
