So for date, Views, token, ctools, admin menu, etc, as I'm preparing my D7 site for conversion, do I disable these modules? Seems like some are standalone core modules in Backdrop and some are not. I don't see any documentation on how to handle these.
And when I connect that D7 database with the Backdrop site, do I go straight to update.php, or do I need to visit the module list page so it knows what stuff is where?
Also, noticed in settings.php that the database spec seems to go back to the D5 (or was that there in D6 too?) string instead of the array that D7 uses, right? Backdrop's settings file does not remind me how to replace those fields, though it seems intuitive, but that might be a thing to add to the settings.php comments.
