Description

Reason

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, and remove MediaWiki-extensions-Other as appropriate. [1]
  • On-wiki documentation
    • Archive documentation on mediawiki.org (https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:PageBlock): replace page contents with {{Archived extension|last revision id before archiving|reason=archive reasons, per {{phab|T247397}}.}}
    • 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). [2]
    • Update Wikidata item (Q21677953) associated with documentation page
      • add statement Abandonware (Q281039) to instance of (P31) together with qualifier start time (P580) = the YYYY-MM-DD date that you decided to archive extension

  • Phabricator

Marked archived in Gerrit: https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/admin/repos/q/filter:PageBlock , GitHub and Diffusion

@hashar GitHub mirror should be deleted, as far as I know, we usually do it, instead of archiving.

And repo on Gerrit should be marked as "read-only".
