Bug Description

Contact information is also contained in the "Profile Info" block and not only the "Contact Info" block. Why does the "Contact Info" block exist?

Mahara 1.4

We'll need to migrate the existing blocks to the profile info block, so this is not a trivial one. However, removing duplicate code sounds like a good thing.

summary: - "Profile Info" block lets you choose the same fields as in "Contact
- Info"
+ Remove the Contact Info block

I've taken a look at a large site and on it there are:
     831 instances of the contactinfo block
81544 instances of the profileinfo block

So if profileinfo block does all the functionality that the contactinfo block does then we could look to remove the contactinfo block as being part of core.

What do others think?

Fine by me as long as the information is migrated as Francois wrote.

Removed Contact info blocktype (Bug #892684)

Since the data storage format is virtually identical for Contact information
and Profile information, all Contact info blocks can easily be changed to
Profile info ones

Increment the artefact internal version number (Bug #892684)

Commit b5c9e316329eca254841783acbd0b7a5177d0349 incremented the
artefact.internal DB version, but not the human-readable version.

Have bumped the version to 1.2.0. Also removed the section of lib/db/upgrade.php
that tells it to upgrade the artefact.internal plugin, because that'll happen
