Epic #70573: Clean up entrypoints
Deprecate script based modules
Would it make sense to always use the mod.php, instead of using the following line in conf.php?
Updated by Ernesto Baschny over 10 years ago
Would make sense, yes, but the core still does that in some modules:
typo3/sysext/cms/layout/conf.php:$MCONF['script'] = 'db_layout.php';
typo3/sysext/func/mod1/conf.php:$MCONF['script'] = 'index.php';
typo3/sysext/info/mod1/conf.php:$MCONF['script'] = 'index.php';
typo3/sysext/version/cm1/conf.php:$MCONF['script'] = 'index.php';
Please also note that Benni merged this FEATURE some time ago which is related to this: #49643. Since Benni is now "back in business" you might want to get in touch with him for further details or plans in this area.
