We're still receiving a couple thousand requests per day on the zero subdomain, can't kill it just yet.

https://foundation.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_Zero could benefit from an update that it has been closed.

Also noticed it is in a category called "Archival content to be exported to Meta-Wiki". So sounds like it should be moved to Meta.

ACK, not planning to delete it.

I wonder what that means for changing robots.php (https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/operations/mediawiki-config/+/482100/) or waiting with that.

https://foundation.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_Zero could benefit from an update that it has been closed.

Disregard, it already has a comment that it's discontinued. The part about the Meta move stands though.

Remove obsolete Wikipedia Zero bits

Reason:
Yeah, I assumed the Zero sunset was much further along. Let's put this on ice for now.

Per https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Delete_a_wiki, I've checked:

  • CentralAuth: There are 0 entires in centralauth.localnames for non-unified zerowiki accounts.
  • GlobalUsage: There are 0 entries in commonswiki.globalimagelinks for zerowiki (as expected, given it was a private fishbowl wiki).

Update on zero.wikipedia.org: in August, the subdomain had received 5398 requests. What do we think is a reasonable cutoff for its removal?
