I've come to the conclusion that Skillet is a Retail addon and Skillet - Classic will be a different addon with a different set of sources. This decision is supported by a comparison of:
World of Warcraft\_retail_\BlizzardInterfaceCode\Interface\AddOns\Blizzard_TradeSkillUI\
World of Warcraft\_classic_\BlizzardInterfaceCode\Interface\AddOns\Blizzard_TradeSkillUI\
The question now becomes, do I want to write Skillet - Classic?
The way I look at it with my addons is ..
1. Do I need it ?
2. How popular is it ?
3. How time consuming will the conversion and later patches be ?
4. Is there another addon that is easier to convert and works in a similar way ?
5. Am I bored enough that I don't care what the answers are ?
My MagePorts addon passes 1(kinda) and 2 (definitely)... I am at question 3 and I really am not sure yet.. it all depends on whether I can get a similar output with different functionality.
