Small Wiki Toolkits: How-to guidelines and/or potential recommendations for AbuseFilter
Open, LowestPublic

Description

I sometimes find requests from newly created wikis for help with setting up AbuseFilter rules on that wiki.
Recent example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_%28technical%29#Creating_an_Abuse_filter (and static permalink)

So I'm wondering which specific docs to point to (and if docs might welcome some improvements).
Is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Edit_filter/Requested the best place these days, or are there better places?

Task might welcome input from stewards. :)

Quiddity pointed out that I might be wrong about

"Should https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:AbuseFilter/Global really be linked here?

in the task description, as it's related to "Global abuse filters were subsequently implemented and are set and operated from Meta-Wiki.". So I'll remove that.
