I know I am probably jumping the gun a bit here but are there any plans on how extensions will be migrated?

I mean, not automatically but it shouldn’t be too much work.
It’s a major new release, they have to do some changes.
Data from acp_info should be translated to the new parameters. And main_module should become a regular controller, which most extensions already do anyway.

But this is not really I want this topic to be headed. It still needs some work and I would like some more details on that.
