Open, MediumPublic

Description

The uses cases should either be removed/commented out or should be updated such that they are wrapped in rmwhitespace()

Below is a list of distinct wikis for which a message was sent to the appropriate noticeboard/village pump page on Oct 27. As local community members take it on to handle it for their wiki, we will check off the list. In 2 weeks (i.e. Nov 10), whichever wikis did not take this on will be taken care of by an abuse filter maintainer (@Huji in this case). Once all items are checked off, this task can be closed.

@Huji beware that you cannot be notified in wikis where you don't have an account (e,g. ro.wp)

@Strainu I did not know that.
I'm going to visit all those wikis so that CentralAuth generates as account for me.
When I will review the list in ~2 weeks, I will recheck those wikis not checked off to make sure I did not miss a notification.

Looking at this task again, what is the status? Should we check every wiki again, and/or send another announcement? @Huji

@Huji: Hi, the Due Date set for this open task is several months ago.
