Hi Thomas,

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 
haven't forgotton:

- 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 ?
