By the way, what about a separate package for custom panels of
IzPack users? The package
contains all the standard panels. I think there should be a restricted
policy for this panels. E.g. support should be possible also the author
is not available. Some of our current panels makes at this some problems...

But there are custom panels which makes there job for one or two
user, but they are not really common. I have some which I can share,
but I have no time (and fun) to bring them on a state which will be
needed to put them into the panels package. As short message:
Let us create a separate package for custom panels where we said
"these are custom panels from IzPack users without support from the
IzPack developer team". Docu have to be, but in a saparate chapter.
My idea:
Since ~ 10 month we have com.izforge.izpack.sample. But I think
these type of panels are a little bit more than samples, therefore
an other path.

Any comment?
