Archive the EditAccount extension

The code is fine and does what it says on the tin, but the extension has a much bigger problem: namely it's been broken since AuthManager was introduced and no-one's maintaining and/or fixing it, and as such it should probably be archived instead.

To-do list

  • This task
    • Add maintainers of that extension as subscribers to this task (if they have no apparent Phabricator account, notify them on-wiki or via email if possible and note it here).
    • Add Phabricator project <#ProjectX> as a tag for this task, or MediaWiki-extensions-Other if there is no project. (Requested in T205293)
  • On-wiki documentation
    • Archive documentation on ( replace page contents with {{Archived extension|3191112|EditUser|reason=Broken since AuthManager was introduced; see also [[phab:T221494]]}}.
    • If documentation page was translatable, remove <translate>, visit Special:PageTranslation, and click "remove from translation" (if you don't have the translation administrator right, ask a user who does).
    • Archive Wikidata item associated with documentation page ( (remove nearly all statements, except instance of (P31) = MediaWiki extension (Q6805426), which should add a qualifier end time (P582) = the YYYY-MM-DD date that you decided to archive extension, generally per edit history, change English (and other languages if possible) description to "archived MediaWiki extension" (and its translation)).
  • Phabricator
    • Archive Phabricator project <#ProjectX> for the extension.
    • Mark all Phabricator tasks for the extension either Declined or Invalid.
    • Edit Phabricator project <#ProjectX> description for the extension with a link to this ticket.
    • Remove from (groups/MediaWiki/mediawiki-extensions.txt) (add project as a tag for this task).
  • Configuration/tests/integrations/etc.
  • Repositories

What a shame. This was the last extension allowing to edit an account in a sane way.

Only mirror on GitHub is left to be deleted, can @Jdforrester-WMF, @MarcoAurelio or someone else who have permission to delete mirror on GitHub and close this task as resolved?
