Multiple MediaWiki hooks are not documented on mediawiki.org
Open, LowPublic

Description

Many hooks inside MediaWiki are not documented on mediawiki.org. We should make it a habit that when a new hook is added, documentation is immediately updated, but together with that, we should catch up and document hooks that are already existing and being used.

Undocumented hooks can be seen here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Category:Undocumented_MediaWiki_hooks
I'll be adding more of them, please feel welcome to add too if you notice undocumented hooks.

TBH this feels like a waste of manpower to me. hooks.txt is easily parsable so this can be automated (see T155029 for plans), we have plenty of other tasks which do require manual effort.

Well, we should update https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Hooks regardless. It was last correct with MediaWiki 1.8.2, and is really in need of some attention.
