Comment (by timo):

 Just a quick update on the work that I did at the beer and wine sprint in

 - All control panels have been migrated to either plone.autoform or
 plone.app.registry (including the users/groups control panels).
 - There are currently some test failures in the filter control panel
 (which means it is not 100% ready yet).
 - There are some z3c.form widgets missing and some cleanup is necessary.
 - I still have to write an upgrade step to for the GS profiles.
 - We should replace calls to the old portal tools API with p.a.registry
 API calls and deprecate the old methods.

 There is already a tutorial that I wrote some time ago about how to create
 a control panel with p.a.registy:


 Is this already sufficient? I could write another tutorial about how to
 extend an existing control panel, but I don't think this use case is
 pretty common and it would be basically the same as

 The Jenkins job is still failing because there are still failing tests.

 I would like to know which version we target for this PLIP. If this is
 considered to go into the 4.x series I would like to know as soon as
 possible, because it would mean that I have to reserve some time for it.
