there is / was a very nice proposal to "clean up" TER in a very smart
way (by only allowing to set "dependency maximum on latest TYPO3 CMS
version" etc). Jigal was involved as he summed the idea from the ECT
quite nicely some time ago. Jigal, could you post an update on that
matter? What's it's status?
