Consider removal of Extension:HideSection
Open, LowPublic

Description

This extension used the deprecated hook ParserSectionCreate, for which no replacement exists. Supposedly core is supposed to work in something that can be used to replace it, but this does not currently exist to my knowledge.

cc @labster in case you want to try and find an alternate implementation of this.

Universal_Omega moved this task from Backlog to Actions Needed (Review) on the Extensions board.
Universal_Omega moved this task from Backlog to Short Term on the MediaWiki (SRE) board.
Universal_Omega moved this task from Unsorted to Short Term on the Universal Omega board.

Just to note it also uses the deprecated SkinTemplateOutputPageBeforeExec hook which should be replaced. I do think it's possible to replace both hooks with this extension though. Even removing the ParserSectionCreate hook can be done, just removes a feature and configuration variable also.

Low priority since this doesn't need to be done immediately, and probably not until 1.37.
