Hi. After closing the education program namespaces, they should be removed from the namespaces list of the cirrussearch filters. Thank you.

30 months later, i'm still waiting for someone to answer the question.
Will there still be pages with content in the education program namespaces? Typically we don't want to make any content that exists (but is perhaps archived/uneditable/etc) unfindable.
@IKhitron could add more precisions to your ticket esp. which wikis you consider the education program namespace should disappear?
Note that reading the system configation the Education Program appears to be still in use on several wikis:
The education extension is actually no longer used in any wiki (see T125618). In some wikis, however, the namespaces were not removed, as there were still pages there, e.g. as archives. However, the namespaces should of course be removed if there are no more pages in them (e.g. requested here: T282112).
Personally, however, I also have to say that I don't think the term $wmgUseEducationProgram is particularly good, as it implies that the extension is activated. However, this is not the case, only the namespaces 446 (Education Program) and 447 (Education Program talk) are defined and that's it (see https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/plugins/gitiles/operations/mediawiki-config/+/9939edb27f8a43def7fefe1eae734b078dea003a/wmf-config/CommonSettings.php#3063).
In some wikis, however, the namespaces were not removed, as there were still pages there, e.g. as archives.
And this is also true for hewiki: https://he.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D7%9E%D7%99%D7%95%D7%97%D7%93:%D7%9B%D7%9C_%D7%94%D7%93%D7%A4%D7%99%D7%9D?from=&to=&namespace=447.
There are some pages left and these should be deleted or moved to another namespace first.
