Rename Special:ElectronPdf to Special:Download as Pdf or Special:Export as Pdf
Open, LowPublic

Description

Now that Electron is Proton, this Special Page name makes little sense. It should be renamed to something more future proof.

Makes sense to me. Olga is this something we should do or RI? Seems relatively trivial.

Special:DownloadAsPdf is probably more in line with current naming conventions, I don't think we have any special page with space in its name.

Any chance of a review Gergo on https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/527203 ?
It's a shame the extension is called ElectronPdfService. There should be a rule against mentioning any kind of technology in an extension name..

It's possible to rename the extension, if someone feels they have the time for it. Create a new repo, import the old one into it, remove "electron" everywhere, deploy it to production, switch, undeploy the old one, rename things in mw.org and Phab... probably a bit more work than worth it though.

(And yes, if all the extension does is fetch a configurable remote URL, don't build assumptions about the service behind that URL into the name.)
