|Stalled||None||T203899 Undeploy EUCopyright related extensions and delete fixcopyrightwiki|
In my previous experience with creating redirects at the Apache level (alswikibooks and wiktionary to alswiki and mowiki, mowiktionary to rowiki) it required wiki deletion, not just closing (cc @EddieGP for the memories and T181923: Delete als.wik(ibooks|iquote|tionary), mo.wik(ipedia|tionary) for the checklist/issues, etc. Granted, it's a non-CA wiki with virtually nothing to be kept around afaics so this should be easier).
That said, I feel that with the rules for creating a wiki at hand, creating one to host just one page and for just this campaign was overkill, something like using a sledgehammer to crack nuts, with all due respect. A webpage hosted in a *.wikimedia.org domain would've just served the same purpose IMHO. What's done is done though.
Creating a wiki requires a lot of work. Deleting a wiki does often require far more work as there's no deleteWiki.php script to do most operations for us.
That said, the European Parliament vote to which this extension was aimed at is over. Unless you want to keep this around for the final votes in the Parliament after the Commision-Council-Parliament dialogue finishes, we can start doing this now.
First of all, I agree with MarcoAurelio. I don't have any context here, but if the plan was to create a new wikis for a one-off campaign and delete it after said campaign is over, then you've probably found one of the most effective ways of burning wmf resources that could easily be circumvented. I'm not sure whether it's easy to create a wiki these days, but deleting it is definitely not, it requires a lot of manual work from different wmf teams, none of which are usually short on work.
That said, I tried to document everything we did in T181923, and all possible problems that occured, at https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Delete_a_wiki . If there's anything I can help with, feel free to ping me. :)
https://fixcopyright.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:AllPages shows just two pages. Overall the deletion won't be complicated, but it indeed requires coordination from several groups. This cannot commence until we switch back to the primary datacenter (eqiad) so keeping the task stalled for now.
