Imported as https://codein.withgoogle.com/tasks/5724147925647360/ - Happy to act as a proxy so I explicitly wrote that You *must* use the linked Phabricator task for communication with your mentors as some of the task mentors are not registered here on the GCI website.

@Aklapper @Ladsgroup @Lucie
Is this still needed? It seems @SamanthaNguyen has recently made some pretty comprehensive edits to the documentation since this was imported. https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Extension:ArticlePlaceholder&action=history
Thanks!

@MtDu The edits are pretty nice already, but if anyone could go further over the text and improve it in general, that would be amazing. I don't think it's really helpful as is.
Thanks!

Oh hey, I didn't know this ticket existed - at the time I was just going through updating extensions in this category:
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Category:Extensions_used_on_Wikimedia

I can look more over it tomorrow :)

Sounds great! Another thing, I have on my todo list since forever is to add a list of Wikipedias, where the extension is deployed. They are all mentioned here for example: https://grafana.wikimedia.org/dashboard/db/article-placeholder

Let's please only link to this. Otherwise this will get out of date quickly and hurt more than help.
