Hi all,

> I click on the Page module I see a blank page. It is not entirely blank

> typo3conf/ext/templavoila/mod1/index.php?id=1

Just in case someone has a similarly mysterious issue, here's what it 
was: due to a misconfiguration of a .gitignore file, the index.php file 
of templavoila/mod1 was missing.

In such a case (i.e. a missing file - and because TV does not use the 
dispatcher for its BE modules), the module loader 
(\TYPO3\CMS\Backend\Module\ModuleLoader) falls back on "dummy.php", 
whereas one would rather expect some form of error message.
