Note(s):

To facilitate keeping the distribution lightweight and because soon the Lightning Contrib modules will be EOL we need to remove all of the Lightning contrib in a way that doesn’t break an upgrade path and documents the modules removed in case site builders will want to manually add them to their own composer.json file

Note: that all error messages stating “Currently using Missing or invalid module” will be resolved after running the drush updatedb step above.

a) [Deprecate] Remove Lightning Core #3302473

Please read over the above issue and consult the below list of the removed composer entries in case you are depending on any of them and need to apply them manually to your composer.json file.

"drupal/acquia_telemetry-acquia_telemetry": "^1.0-alpha3",
"drupal/contact_storage": "^1.0",

All of the Lightning Core functionality was directly ported to support an upgrade path and an update script written in the wxt_core_update_8433 function.

Note: Any Lightning sub modules will also be uninstalled.

b) [Deprecate] Remove Lightning Media #3301875

Please read over the above issue and consult the below list of the removed composer entries in case you are depending on any of them and need to apply them manually to your composer.json file.

Nothing removed at the moment

c) All of the Lightning Media functionality was directly ported to support an upgrade path and an update script written in the wxt_core_update_8433 function.

Note: Any Lightning sub modules will also be uninstalled.

d) Finally check your custom modules and / or configuration objects for any reference to lightning_core, lightning_page and lightning_media as some of your config objects (that we couldn’t automatically correct) might reference the old modules and this step will be important to get your configuration objects properly loaded.

Note: These references should be replaced by their new counterparts wxt_core, wxt_ext_page and wxt_ext_media. As some of your config objects might reference the old modules this step is important to get your config loaded.
