Hi all,

There seems to be a deprecation issue starting with TYPO3 CMS 6.0. 
Method \TYPO3\CMS\Backend\Utility\BackendUtility::helpText() was marked 
as deprecated (without replacement hint BTW), but it is still called by 
\TYPO3\CMS\Backend\Utility\BackendUtility::wrapInHelp(). This leads to 
the deprecation log being absolutely flooded with warnings. Furthermore 
this deprecation sounds wrong, since the method is still actively used 
by the Core.

This change is related to the following cleanup:


which was apparently a bit excessive. I would suggest to simply revert 
the deprecation statement in 
\TYPO3\CMS\Backend\Utility\BackendUtility::helpText(). Does that sound 
ok or was there a further plan for this?
