What is the best way to update a Sharepoint 2007 custom list schema file (that is deployed using a feature) after the list has been deployed to production.
Scenario: We have custom list based on a custom list definition and template that we have deployed to production. Users have added items to this list and also added their own new columns to this list apart from what we originally included. Now
I want to update this list schema (add another custom column). Whats the best way to achieve that?
Also, a related question is that if a new <field> entry is added to an already deployed schema file, will pushing the new schema file to the right place be enough or will a feature deactivation/activation also be required? I have noticed that some
changes to schema files are picked up without the need to deactivate/activate the feature. But whats the general practice for scenarios like this?
