Description

Hi again,

An extension author might want/need to enter a (new) extension information progressively. That is, s-he might not have time to enter all and every details at once.

As I understand things, once you start creating an extension, you've got to go the whole process route, otherwise you may lose the previously entered details. For instance, I may create an extension infrastructure but not add the .oxt file yet. As of current process, this doesn't stop the (inexistant) "extension" to be updated from the 'Draft' status to 'Published'. Thus the UI is... well... "strange": users can read a description but there's nothing to download.

As an author, I'd prefer having the following states: 'Draft' (remains as such as long as the author decides) -> 'Ready' (the administrator is allowed to check and publish) -> 'Published'

Best,
