I fully agree with you that this is an important information. I was just
telling that the already existing field where we have the
"TYPO3-version" displayed (in the detail view of an extension) is NOT
what you are looking for. That information is just the TYPO3-version
from where the author uploaded it to TER.

So you are right, we would need to create a new field (in
ext_emconf.php) which the author has to fill out, if he knows the
minimum requirement. Or even better, use the already existing
"dependencies" tag to require certain version numbers, instead of just
extension keys. This could/should work just like RPM pakages. And having
a new "pseudo-extension-key" called "TYPO3core" we could even put the
required TYPO3core version, if the author has that information.

It was me that asked. :)
