Pattern skin updates have been a pain in the past. Don't let a bug fix release rub the salt. I propose to change left bars of current webs to WebLeftBarExample and WebTopBar to WebTopBarExample. Only the _default web can have WebLeftBar.

Of course there are complications I have overseen right now...

This bug should have been in the release blocker SEARCH but whoever changed the release blockers topic forgot to add StandardReleaseComponent to quite many extensions incl Pattern Skin so it was missed.

If we do not ship WebLeftBar with TWiki the existing webs will look like shit after an installation so the proposal as given is not going to work.

I agree that a solution for upgraders would be good. But the proposed solution is creating a new problem.

I will not let this block a 4.2.1 release. We can manually remove updates to WebLeftBar from the upgrade package (as I have often done).

Lowering to Normal
