There are probably some low hanging fruit to help simplify upgrades to new Foswiki versions.

  1. Remove AdminUserLeftBar.txt from the upgrade package. No code change, that's just a procedure issue.
  2. Move Main.GroupViewTemplate to System.GroupViewTemplate. For the most part, the template will be found automatically based upon the template search path.
  3. Change Main.WikiGroups to %INCLUDE{"Main.WikiGroupsComponents, System.WikiGroupsComponents", and move the "guts" to System.WikiGroupsComponents.
  4. Move Main.GroupTemplate to System.GroupTemplate.
  5. Edit, to look for GroupTemplate in the Usersweb, then System web.

Currently our "upgrade" package for the Main web only ships 4 files We probably can easily eliminate these:

We could probably also drop the _default and _empty webs completely from the upgrade package.

GroupTemplate usage is hardcoded into TopicUserMappingContrib. It's a minor change to check for System.GroupTemplate if Main.GroupTemplate does not exist.

Checked into the Item14343 branch. Should be okay to merge but want 2nd set of eyes please.

Reopening. These changes are vulnerable to the Item14629 issues. The topics that can be customized by creating a topic in the Main web need to be secured by configuration.
