[dsdp-tm-dev] Committers please vote: [api]removing remoteSystemsViewPreferencesActions and dynamicPopupMenuExtensions extension points

Dear committers,

In the committer call this week we discussed removing the


extension points. While the first one was accepted,
there was some initial concern about 
dynamicPopupMenuExtensions. I think that 
with his comments on
Uwe Stieber has addressed all these concerns.

May I thus go forward and remove the two extension 
points? - Please vote in response to this E-Mail.
