Major Feature #30711
Provide an update module to FAL/Media Management
Two scenarios need to be covered:
TYPO3 < 4.7 without DAM installed¶
All media files reside either in fileadmin or in uploads. The files from uploads need to be copied to a place in fileadmin, after that a sys_file DB entry must be added for each file. Then for each file usage a sys_file_reference needs to be added.
TYPO3 < 4.7 with DAM installed¶
- For eaxch tx_dam entry a sys_file entry needs to be written.
- If dam_ttcontent is used, for each tx_dam_mm_ref a sys_file_reference needs to be written.
- If dam_filelinks is used, for each tx_dam_mm_ref a sys_file_reference needs to be written (CE Filelinks).
- If dam_ttnews is used, for each tx_dam_mm_ref a sys_file_reference needs to be written.
- The <media> tag in each bodytext fierld from tt_content (and maybe other extensions using an RTE) needs to be adjusted to the sys_file item instead of the tx_dam item.
[FEATURE] Add first version of a DAM migration script
The patch adds the first version of a migration script from DAM.
If a previous DAM installation is detected, the Extension Manager
displays a link to the migration wizard.

Does dam_tv_connector needs special treatment too?

As info, the migration script from Benni is available at https://github.com/b13/t3ext-dam_falmigration in the form of an extension. It includes a few scheduler tasks and a BE module. I have not tested the script but I like the idea of shipping that as a standalone extension which has the advantage of not bloating Media with some code that we can not get rid of in the long term.

This is for sure needed. However, I don't have a good answer. We are not using such extensions in our company and a solution won't be spontaneously provided from my side. Though, it would be good to have an approach for that. Feel free to make some thoughts. If something is required Media-wise, I can help in the implementation.

What is the difference if TYPO3 = 4.7 with DAM is used? I have such an installation…
I still have no idea how to migrate news (tx_news) with DAM to news with FAL (FAL implementation of news is already included in the current GIT master branch version (3.0dev).

Currently there is no conversion yet, thats why you can choose to use both the old and new way in the extension settings of ext:news.
I created an importer for the tt_news extension.
https://github.com/fsaris/news_ttnewsimport (had no time yet to publish this in ter).
Maybe you can use this for creating a ext:news + DAM to ext:news + FAL converter/importer
