I think the current implementation via action is much better.

Reproduce the bug - (proposal)
Install Mediawiki 1.28.0
Install DeleteForGood.
Create mediawiki pages.

Upgrade Mediawiki Version 1.29.0 or 1.29.1
Attempt to delete a page with DeleteForGood.

> Normally, does not work. (?)

Delete the page, recreate the page, delete the page completely with DeleteForGood.

> Normally, works. (?)

The new pages created under Mediawiki 1.29.1 seem to be able to be deleted, with the extension DeletePageForGood.

The old pages created under Mediawiki 1.28.x seem not to be able to be deleted, with the extension DeletePageForGood.

That comment is unrelated to this task T113883 which is about having a special page and not about deleting. See T182545 instead.
