Redefine the location of 'static' folder in Pillar and extensions
Open, NormalPublic


Currently we automatically create pillar_static and <extension_name>_static values to be used in url_for() to serve static files. We expect to find a static directory inside the extension package.

Since this is stupid (according to the engineering team) we propose to move static to the root of the repo. This means changing the behavior of register_static_file_endpoint and move the static directory to the new location in all Pillar extensions.

Any comments @Sybren A. Stüvel (sybren)?
