Add a maintence report sub-set of special pages for the "Module:" namespace
Open, NormalPublic

Description

I think it will be nice to have such a special page sub-set. Wikis reusing content from other wikis (e.g. Wikimedia or other projects) utilizing this extension would benefit for knowing if a module is missing, etc. post importation/creation to get the show running.

Currently we have a long standing, simple-to-follow & logic based maintenance group of generated listings. This group has a sub-set of complimentary Special: pages within it detailing specific maintenance deficiencies per a set group of namespaces. This sub-set is illustrated in the table below...

Uncategorized categoriesUnused categoriesWanted categories
Uncategorized filesUnused filesWanted files
Uncategorized pagesUnused pagesWanted pages
Uncategorized templatesUnused templatesWanted templates

.
In short, this proposal requests building upon the existing "foundation" of maintenance Special: pages illustrated in the above table by adding the following equivalent for the Module namespace to it ...

Uncategorized modulesUnused modulesWanted modules

.
The caveat in adding such a sub-set would seem to result in a rather "large" maintenance group section in the end.

If so, further discussion of any possibility in filtering each specific maintenance task by namespace(s) to shorten the list is needed (iow- not sure filtering of such Special: cached pages is even possible never mind feasible).

I think https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/218116/ is a better way of accomplishing the same goal.

Indeed it is. At least it makes sense to me. Great! :)
