@RichardHeigl, please add your remarks anyway! What's the intention for the Hangout? I suggest to state clear questions to be answered (agenda) before. This is a topic with a lot of technical details which cannot be discussed easily within an hour (your initial 3 questions included). Please help me working on the details as basis for discussion: a concept draft for an improved extension "store". See my humble list above as starting point. Sounds good??

As I understood it, @RichardHeigl "volunteered" for doing the research! :) I think it is too early to open up the discussion, before we go into detail, we could need an analysis of the current "store" and existing stores (WordPress, Magento etc.) plus problem/demands descriptions and goals/improvements. From this, we shall get a concept draft, which can be opened for discussion. Richard, do you think we can start with this?
