S1. Bare bones special page to enable Flow without additional cleverness
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Estimated Story Points

Description

We have not yet prioritized enable/disable, are trying to get rid of wgFlowOccupyPages (T90977), but continue getting one-off requests to enable Flow.

I think the best interim solution is to make a bare-bones special page that works similar to what we provide for bots (i.e. only works if the page doesn't exist and doesn't handle archiving for you).

How hard is it to do archive the wikitext page + create a board there? I think that's going to be the most common use case over the next little while -- enabling Flow on pages that have had wikitext before.

The main issue is that we haven't yet figured out a great way to choose archive titles that takes into account both language (it is not i18n-ed at all AFAICT) and site conventions. See second issue on parent task ("Our logic for choosing archive pages ...").

It should also give a clear error if the page already exists.
