    Better way to record version compatibility of packages with Umbraco upgrades

    The wonderful Lee Kelleher raised a really good discussion today on how best to track package compatibility with different versions of Umbraco:

    Seems the current method is more likely to track when a version doesn't work as opposed to when it does and this causes a perception issue which can put potential users of a package off needlessly.

    I think this might be a good case for some intervention from Core to make it easier to prompt admins/developers to record compatibility of packages from within the back office itself. I'd recommend this was do via a dialog/dashboard that could be shown after an upgrade or a package is installed (might be better to delay this x days after so as to not nag). This could also (or as well as) live on the package area in the back office with a new button next to each package.

    Our would need a change too ideally to show how many reviewers we've had per version and as the twitter conversations states maybe having a thread hold before compatibility is actually show (ie 5 users need to say it works before we show the green tick).
