pi_overview: Make a select/group field instead of textarea for instance groups
The flexform for frontend plugn pi_overview isn't really easy to configure.
The textarea doesn't give you much help on what to write and who knows the name of your instance group (ex. instancegroup_1?!) when you haven't entered it anywhere.
Therefor i suggest the following changes to the pi_overview flexform:
- A select/group field where you can select your instancegroups.
- A field giving you the possibility to choose all instance groups from a specific pid

I can see that the optional description isn't shown so I'll rewrite it here:
We are currently setting up caretaker and having a great time using it!
So my work will maybe support the caretaker project and allow me to build these features doing workhours, or else I will personally like to contribute to the project if feature is accepted.

we planned to add a wizard there but postponed it to a later time. The intention is to show the node-tree and to allow the selection of nodes. The same wizard should be used in all caretaker fe-plugins. The only problem is that the existing wizards in TYPO3 do not fit our needs. We neither can use a simple TCA-group field to select records nor we use a select with a userfunction since the nodetree usually is quite complex.
Imho the best way would be to use TCA-user field with a wizard function.
We would be glad if you volunteer to take this task since we have no time to do this in the near future.
