Hi Andreas,

Unfortunately I do not have a decent workaround for you, once you extend 
a framework (which you probably did at some point) you cannot save the 
extension back as a regular framework configuration, it always remains 
an extension of a base.
We'll consider your feedback and maybe try to add some future 
improvements in this regard.
What you could do right now would be to save your framework extension 
with "Storage->External" next to the base framework in order to avoid 
saving it at Project level but it will still remain an extension.
