A user, (who runs a multisite network), wrote in with the following suggestions (slightly edited for clarity):

I still have to go through each individual site and activate/deactivate modules, though from the network I have them all linked to my one wordpress.com account. It would be nice if on the network screen I could activate/deactivate the modules for each site OR there was just a single page with the modules active/inactive and all the sites shared the same module statuses.

Possibly would fit in 3.3, but we've got something else cooking up shortly that may serve the same use case. More to come shortly.

This feature would be nice, I have a University Site and each sector and course has it's own site, but it's all linked to the main site. I'm using Jetpack but it's suck because I can't configure a module globally. We have more thah 80 sites in the network and it's difficulty to configure the same module on each site.

Hey @georgestephanis, It doesn't look like this made it into 3.3. Do you have anything more you can share about the "something else cooking" you mentioned above?

Because this (among other things): https://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-management-option-on-multisite

(As an aside, I've been using a variation of this: http://jeremy.hu/customize-the-list-of-modules-available-in-jetpack/ to block modules, thanks to @blobaugh for pointing me in that direction.)

The changelog had a bit of a clue today: "Enhancement: General: Added custom capabilities for module management on multi-site installs"; but I can't find any additional documentation.

Has there been movement in this area?

Updated: Found this: #2688
