Subject Re: [Starter] Startup detection not working reliable anymore
Date Mon, 02 Mar 2020 08:28:29 GMT
Thanks Konrad,

I'm struggling a little bit here as this worked with the initial version 
we had - that was not a sophisticated implementation but did the trick 
and most importantly did not present exceptions on startup to 
potentially new users.

It seems we now have switched to a general approach which doesn't solve 
the simple use case anymore but instead requires changes to other parts 
as well.

I'm not saying that the general approach is wrong or the additional work 
is wrong, but the simple use case for the starter could be achieved with 
a much simpler solution without annoying users.
