From HandlingCairoDakarPluginDifferences and PluginsConformanceReport

> Can we collate a table of CommonlyAbusedCairoEntryPoints? so to aid people adjusting plugins. I'm thinking:

Cairo non-published method conformance popularity Purpose Dakar equivalent
TWiki::Prefs::getPreferencesValue 10 Get preference values. Usually specifically for this plugin TWiki::Func::getPluginPreferencesValue (most common), TWiki::Func::getPreferencesValue (less common). With older plugins the author may have parsed the topic themselves, leading to irregular behaviour
TWiki::securityFilter 9    
TWiki::wikiName 7    
TWiki::webName 7    
TWiki::getEmailOfUser 7    
TWiki::cmdQuote 6    
TWiki::pubUrlPath 6    
TWiki::sharedSandbox 6    
TWiki::sharedSandbox 6    
TWiki::handleIncludeFile 5    
TWiki::normalizeFileName 5    
TWiki::Form 5    
TWiki::userToWikiName 5    
TWiki::normalizeFileName 5    
TWiki::RELEASE 5    

This comes from 27 Jan 2006 conformance report. We should:

  1. Understand why people needed to use that non-published function
  2. Recommend the alternative for Dakar

Of course, instead of tabulating it here, bridging contribs could be written.

The purpose would be to help people move to Dakar whilst retaining the functionality that locks them on Cairo.
