      = Devfile no longer supports Visual Studio Code extensions

      In {prod-short} {prod-ver}, using the workspace devfile to specify Visual Studio Code extensions has been removed to meet the link:https://devfile.io/docs/2.1.0/overview[devfile v2 specification]. Bug fixes and support are provided only through the end of the {prod-prev-short} {prod-prev-ver} lifecycle. To specify Visual Studio Code extensions, users must now use `.vscode/extensions.json` or `.che/che-theia-plugins.yaml` in their Git repositories. See link:https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_openshift_dev_spaces/3.0/html/user_guide/adding-visual-studio-code-extension[] for more information.

    Description

      As discussed on today's Cabal, the current process for testing w/ devfile v2 won't work as devfile doesn't support Theia vscode extensions.

      Instead we need to rely on a .vscode/extensions.json or a .che/che-theia-plugins.yaml in the project's git repository.

      Florent's blog shows how to do this.
      See https://che.eclipseprojects.io/2021/06/23/@florent.benoit-devfile-v2-and-ide-plug-ins.html

      For Che and Dev Spaces, we should document a KI that devfile v2 does NOT support inclusion of ide plugins, where this was possible in devfile v1 spec, and link to the doc about how to use a .vscode/extensions.json or a .che/che-theia-plugins.yaml files to specify IDE plugins:
