[TYPO3-50-general] Discussion to CodingStandards

Hi Robert,

I have checked the CGL...

And found some unclear things:

---- Guide To T3 5.0 -> CGL
Files and file names
  * Names of configuration files must names start with configuration_

What configuration is ment here. Some internal package configuration or 
some configuration like:
- PackageConfiguration.php
- Configurations.conf

So must/can we check this?

---- CodingStandards

(RL) currently we don't need to worry about that. As soon as we have the 
persistence manager in place, you don't care about databases anyway. But 
even if you do, we shouldn't be that restrictive.

What does the persistence manager exactly do?
Just checking DB-issues? Or does it replace queries?

Perhaps this check should be done for mysql, because the problems is in 
T3 4.x most extensions work only with MySQL. With this check you could 
make sure, T3 5.0 is more flexible and open.


Perhaps the TYPO3CGL could be used as guide, linking to some suggestions 
for beautyful code and better programming. For most devs the OOP, 
namespace etc are new, so if they could run the TYPO3CGL over there code 
and they can learn from it. So the barrier from 4.x to 5.x will decrease.

I did not mean it this way...
It's true. It does not make sense to leave it alone in a namespace.

What about allowing these two ways for a abstract-class. So the dev can 
decide, which is the best way in the context using the abstrac.t
There is no difference for the CM and the namespace


So you have rule: '|_Abstract[a-zA-Z0-9]*$|'

Same for interfaces...


Perhaps additional there could be a rule like:
If you have just the Interface-name, all classes in the same 
folder/namespace must implement this interface.


It would make sense to put the Interface somewhere else.
(Perhaps) it would be clear, that you have to use the interface in these
