Extension factory idea

An extension factory could help with releaving the pain when transitioning to a next major version.  CRUD and new functionalities could be handled by the factory and the extension developer could focus on his own business logic. I will require initial effort, but the rewards would outweigh the pain.
When introduced during the J4 cycle we could benifit in trasition to J5 or even shorten the release cycle.
This is an idea that needs much further investigation, action holder Llewellyn


User experience is a very hot topic as brought in from the FFtF. It's interpretation as to meaning also varies significantly.
Marienella will follow up, for now we see 3 teams/working groups with different focus in different departments. There is an ongoing discussion with "market"
• UX Requirements - team
• UX Design - team
• UX Implementation - team


With Marco now being PDC elect, taking office ultimately march24th, new elections for the team are in order.
Llewellyn and Niels are considering.
