I have a Sharepoint feature that includes a settings list template, which is read by other features. The list must have a particular name for the whole thing to work, so ideally I would rather have a list created instead of a list template.
However I need the list to be permanent as the list can be updated manually to add more settings. Am I wrong in my understand that if I used this http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms476062.aspx every time it's activated the list is a new one that can't be saved? If so how do I go about just creating the list on installation instead?
