Description

Since TXM 0.8.0, the TXM HOME directory contains the version in its path, eg. TXM-0.8.0. At first launch, TXM restores all corpora of TXM HOME directory of older versions. The process can be very long and unwanted + the corpora are copied in the new HOME directory, duplication, etc..
The user must be able to choice to skip this step and/or to manually select a directory and/or to be able to check which old corpus will be imported.

The current behavior has no specifications. Does it check for a directory named "TXM"? In the future, will it check for all versions (TXM-0.8.0, TXM-0.7.9, ect.) since "TXM".
Need to define specs for this. And how manage all the TXM HOME directories? eg. Must they be deleted after beeing imported? etc.

current state of 0.8.0

See issue #2509.

solutions/proposals

a) add a simple pop up dialog "Do you want to import corpora from older version(s)?" then automate all the processes

b) add a pop up dialog to ask the user to browse to a TXM HOME directory then:
b.1) import all corpora
b.2) provide a list of corpora with checkboxes to select whom that will be imported

c) TBD
