Archive the LiveTranslate extension
Closed, ResolvedPublicRequest

Description

Reason:

Looking at Live Translate documentation, it seems all its feature are now part of Translate and ContentTranslation.

LiveTranslate does not seem to be maintained anymore, the last code is from September 2011.

Event Timeline

@Nikerabbit @Raymond Do you agree this extension is no longer needed and that can be archived? Thanks.

I have never used this extension. It serves a different use case from Translate or ContentTranslation, so it is not made obsolete by them. Rather, browsers might include this functionality built-in now. You can ask the authors of the extension.

I'm not a fan of this extension, but why archive an extension which is seemingly still working (there is no indication that it doesn't)?

It had no code update since 2011 as far as I could tell from the git log. Wikiapiary shows it is only got used on one wiki ( https://wikiapiary.com/wiki/Extension:Live_Translate ) and it is not even reacheable nowadays. So most probably nobody is using this extension.

It can still be restored eventually if there is an interest in it.

Fine by me. I think - yes, I don't think anyone has used this extension in a while. @JeroenDeDauw - what do you think?

Thanks but I don't need the overly-detailed instructions.

There are items in the longer instructions that aren't present in the shorter (older) ones. If you don't need specific instructions for each item that's fine, but I don't see much reason to roll back the whole thing, especially when all the task-specific details had already been filled out by someone else.
