Thanks for creating this task! There's a very small chance this extension is not completely doomed, or maybe the Readers Web team will piggyback off of it. So to be on the safe side I'll keep the extension listed as "experimental".

Sorry, I did not know archiving was such an involved process!

It is a little troubling that the messaging is up for translation on TWN, when as written these messages may never be seen by the public :/ I'll defer to you on what to do there.
