Original task description

I found the extension DiscussionThreading. I'm not sure does it work with a newer version of the MediaWiki + it is unmaintained.

Should we archive this extension, because there are already alternatives which are maintained?

When creating such tickets it would be good to give an explicit heads-up to authors / maintainers (@Jdpond) to avoid archiving other folks' code without a warning.

(Also see Projects-Cleanup for the checklist template, once this task is actionable.)

I have not been active in maintaining this extension for years. However, for a while, Robert Vogel and a group in Germany were using it - haven't tracked how recent those changes were.

The team at Hallo Welt! GmbH / BlueSpice is maintaining Extension:NSFileRepo. We requested maintainership a couple of years ago from @Jdpond. We do not maintain Extension:DiscussionThreading. From my point of view you can archive this extension. Thanks.

Thanks! In that case, for anyone who would like to push this task, there is a template linked from https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/profile/2829/ to use for archiving code bases.
