I'm trying to get up to speed with the Extension Manager.
Did you manage to get this done or is it still in the works ?
If it's there, how can we test the feature and current status ?
Also I'd like to propose that we put a few things in place for the
Extension Manager feature:
1/ An action plan on this page:
We do have a lot of Use Cases, but we don't know the priority of each
and which one are worked one/already done.
The "Gadgets Action Plan" is a good example (although it's not up to date):
One we have an action plan, I'd like to review it and make sure we
- which work is needed to wire the feature for "end-users"
- platform work (have a respository available)
- sample extensions (have some sample extensions in the repository)
2/ Build a test plan so that Sorin can test the new feature and verify
it corresponds to the objectives
What do you think ?
