This page is obsolete. It is being retained for archival purposes. It may document extensions or features that are obsolete and/or no longer supported. Do not rely on the information here being up-to-date.
MediaWiki used the Subversion version control system, but has since migrated MediaWiki core and nearly all extensions to Git.
These are the sort of defacto standards for deleting extensions from SVN trunk.
- Add a
OBSOLETEfile to the ext directory.
- Example Message: "As of MediaWiki 1.17.0 this extension is obsolete lack of maintenance. It will be deleted from subversion on the 1.17.0 release."
- Update on wiki extension documentation pages.
- Make sure extension exists in the current branch release
(/branches/REL<X>_<YY>/extensions/<NAME>/)along with the obsolete notice
- Delete from trunk after the next branch point.
