K6ka added a comment to T7055: Problem with importing data to the Talk:AjaxPoll namespace.

I imported the .xml file uploaded here to one of my Miraheze wikis as a test. The wiki has the AJAXPoll extension enabled, but does not have an "AjaxPoll" namespace registered. The import worked without a hitch, so I don't think it's an .xml issue.

Universal_Omega added a comment to T7128: Consider undeploying some unmaintained extensions.

https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/c/mediawiki/extensions/NewUserNotif/+/678647 fixes the reasons for my recommendation of removal for that extension (using deprecated hook, and not on ExtensionRegistry) just hoping that gets merged so we don't have to get rid of it.

Dmehus added a comment to T7128: Consider undeploying some unmaintained extensions.

The thing with some of them is that while they're not maintained the code is very easy and not in a great need of maintaining. Though since FancyBoxThumbs is completely archived, I don't think it's a great idea to keep that one at least.

And yes of course, @R4356th if we decide to remove them a sitenotice will be present on the wikis that have them enabled currently.

We shouldn't be keeping archived extensions. If they're archived properly then they shouldn't work because the repo will be empty in git (at least for gerrit canonical ones).

WikiJS added a comment to T7128: Consider undeploying some unmaintained extensions.

I believe we should keep the most used extensions from the list. FancyBoxThumbs and PipeEscape should be removed, but I believe that ACP should stay.

Fandom never had an AjaxPoll namespace. I preceded all of those pages with AjaxPoll: to show that they are AjaxPoll pages.

Also what am I going to do? Because I simply have to have that stuff imported one way or another.

Many wikis enable extensions but never use them. I think it may be a good idea to inform communities using these extensions before un-deploying them.

Joritochip added a comment to T7125: Improve ManageWiki extension interface.

Split the long extension list into multiple categories, so that similar functionality is grouped together (kind of akin to what Special:SpecialPages does). While it might be possible to get this from extension.json, this might end up with too many groups. We may want to choose a smaller group to be manually determined, like "User rights and moderation" "Wikicode functions" (parser functions), "Appearance", "Editing", Special Pages", "Other". The categories might be grouped into tabs or with ordinary headers; I'm fairly agnostic on this point.

Already supported, just needs mw-config change for that. You just need to add the 'section' => 'section' key => value to ManageWikiExtensions.php.

Next to each extension, load descriptionmsg from extension.json (or the translation files). The intent here is likely to be able to read what is not applicable before reading every page on Wikimedia.

Fair enough. I've talked to another user and we were both confused on how this works; maybe it's just us. If this comes up again, we might want to implement the suggestion, but otherwise closing this request.

$wgPFEnableStringFunctions is not on by default because that's not the extension default and as far as I'm aware we usually set our defaults to the extension defaults.

I can't find any problems with the new simpleelectronicswiki caused by the move. I understand there would be no going back to the previous database. Please go ahead with the export/drop/import.
