What is eZ Platform with Legacy?

Are you one of those developers that still don't want to get ride of Legacy admin interface? Since this commit eZ Platform is not shipped with legacy-bridge anymore. So, if you still want to add legacy admin interface and use all those old eZ Publish extensions, you need to adapt your installation following the instructions given in the legacy brige file

eZ Platform with Legacy will just do this for you, allowing the installation of eZ Platform and old legacy code without the need to manually modify anything.

eZ Publish Community vs. this repo

The eZ Publish community is still available, but it does not contain last changes made to eZ Platform repo and so you won't get all the last updates eZ Platform has. Oh the other side, eZ Platform with Legacy can be used with the last versions of eZ Platform.
