Link to extension documentation from extension manager
This was an idea / feature request that was made on Slack a while ago and reappeared during the developer days (requested by someone else).
In general, people often wish for having links to the documentation on docs.typo3.org in the BE.
It should be possible to generate the documentation URL from the information in composer.json, except that not all extensions have documentation on docs.typo3.org (or the extension has already been rerendered with the new mechanism).
Additionally, this is the file that contains all rendered docs: https://intercept.typo3.com/assets/docs/manuals.json

To not irritate the user, the installed version should be considered. master within URL should be replaced with the concrete version. In case of hosting at docs.typo3.org, only the first two parts of a version are part of URL, see: https://docs.typo3.org/m/typo3/docs-how-to-document/master/en-us/WritingDocForExtension/Migrate.html#url-structure for information regarding url structure at docs.typo3.org.

You're right, the detail view (for example when installing an extension via TER) already shows a link to the Manual: "Read online". But, you cannot get to the detail view from the list, only by selecting "Get extensions", right?
I am currently not sure about the future of the Extension Manager in general as for TYPO3 using Composer is the recommended way to install extensions.
