Remove "Retype Topic" feature

Reported by: jri Owned by: jri
Priority: Critical Milestone: Release 4.8.5
Component: DeepaMehta Standard Distribution Version: 4.8.4
Keywords: Cc: dgf, Malte, JuergeN
Complexity: 3 Area: Robustness
Module: deepamehta-core


Complete removal of the "Retype Topic" feature would remove a whole class of problems. Retyping topics generates a ton of difficult edge cases. It's a robustness disaster. See #446.

Retyping was once introduced basically as a means to create Icon topics (from File topics). But with the advent of access controlled file repos this icon approach no longer works. See #1044.

This ticket proposes the removal of the "Retype" command from the Webclient's topic context menu and from the Core API.

Note: this applies only to topics, not associations.
