Subject Re: Schedule for npm transition

Leo, restore will still work.  The only information stored in the saves
list is a set of plugin ids (and versions?).  Restoring will go through the
steps Steve outlines above, and either download from CPR or be mapped
automatically to the npm equivalent.  After the deprecation cutoff, plugins
that aren't in the mapper may fail to restore -- so we could improve the
rollout plan by starting to warn users adding plugins that still fetch from
CPR.
