- Scribbles for Extension Manager clean (17.07.)

- Suggested Olly and Susi talk about console and dependency resolving
- Thomas Maroschik has a script for converting all classes into namespaces
-- compatibility is an issue
-- this topic has been topic during the Freiburg Code Sprint as well (a
separate article on that will be published soon) - results can be found
at https://github.com/tmaroschik/TYPO3.Zubrovka/commits/master

- there has been a discussion on the mailing list concerning
"deprecation strategy" of core components
- the problem is, that if users upgrade from LTS version to next LTS
version, there have been several releases in between that removed
deprecated methods

- concerning the deprecation strategy
-- create an overview of methods/functionality that have been deprecated
and removed
-- this information could be used to automatically check the status of
extensions by grepping for removed methods


- an addition to the deprecated methods could be the disposal of
__callStatic magic methods
- these "wrong" calls could then be forwarded to the correct class by
using the XML structure Susi suggested
- besides that, there could be an alternative extension in the TER that
"prolongs" the functionality of the removed methods (sounds strange, but
- [TODO] Will check status on new layout for Introduction Package 6.0
(since it's a possible impediment for a responsive version of the
Introduction Package)
