Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

We have a bunch of repositories registered in mediawiki/extensions.git that have never been used. I don't think there is any point in keeping them:

That causes a bunch of overhead for CI maintenance and anyone having a clone of mediawiki/extensions.git

Since my name occurs a lot in the above table ... Those repos got created because someone else requested them at some point. I am fine with deleteing them.

Some of these repos have intial patches in gerrit that haven't been reviewed/merged, and shouldn't be deleted.

@demon We will need this https://gerrit.googlesource.com/plugins/delete-project/ plugin to delete those repos in gerrit.

I think we can Archive them within our current SOP and it will be fine.

Just mark them as hidden and we'll be fine. Deletion is destructive.

hashar set Security to None.

I have finally found time to review the list. Repos that had no change have been hidden. For the ones having changes I have abandoned them (most where 2+ years old) and marked them read-only.

Indeed. I don't understand https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/137518/

Neither do I. What possible harm was that patch causing?
