Archive the ShoutBox extension
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

On https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/332138/:

Jack Phoenix - The ShoutBox extension should likely be archived since it's nothing but a MediaWiki "interface" to an external service (shoutbox.us) which has been down for about a year or so.

ShoutBox's documentation on MediaWiki.org should be archived, and the gerrit repo should be marked as archived/read-only (not sure how that works).

I think this is resolved now :)

Being bold and reopening this since it appears that the GitHub mirror is still there at least.
