Description From cendio 2016-11-01 15:16:04
It relies on Java for a lot of its functionality, we believe it is lightly
used, and many customers confuse it with the HTML client. As such the downsides
seem to cancel out any benefit.

The product council approves of removing this functionality. Two requirements
though:

 - An attempt should be made to retain shadowing in tlwebadm, provided it
doesn't require a massive effort.

 - The removed code should be donated to https://github.com/oetiker/tl-extras,
if they are interested

Bug 4928 covers implementing shadowing support for the HTML5 client.

Shadowing does not have to be implemented in the HTML5 client for this. We
could keep the native client configuration file generation function and move it
into tlwebadm.

Completely removing this feature is probably premature. But we can mitigate
some of the most glaring problems:

 - No Java these days (bug 4521)

 - Confusion in tl-setup (bug 5190)
