It would be very useful the possibility of updating documents or files in Redmine.
Beside the delete action could be a new update one.
By doing this, the attachment number will remain the same, and all references in wiki pages or issues or external places will not be necessary their change.

About the doc or file physical storage, the "replaced or updated" file could be removed.

We rely on the DMSF plugin for just this purpose, and it'd be great to drop DMSF once and for all and have a lot more freedom to keep Redmine and other addons up-to-date.

Any possibility to start from DMSF plugin and integrate it, replacing Documents (and potentially also Files) tab and allowing media versioning? Expanding the function also to issue file upload!

Another strategy for core Redmine team would be focusing on stabilization of the plugin API and let others pay (developer time, ...) cost of maintaining their favorite plugins. It might work better than dividing the scarce core developer time between maintaining more and more lines of codes.
