Hi Chris,

The author of the module in question would be the owner of the knowledge of
the changes that are made to the system, which would need to be undone.

Generally there are some behaviors of a well written installable module,

function vtlib_handler has a module.preuninstall, event which could be used
to manage any non standard changes.

There is no best practices document on custom module install and uninstall,
published as a whole, maybe others could contribute to their experiences
and be a part of the Vtiger Development section of their wiki or blog.

With best regards,
