Removal of archived extensions

Summary by Jdforrester (WMF)

Let's keep them, marked as archived.

Does anyone have thoughts on guidelines for when archived extensions should be removed from this page? I suppose an obvious one would be to remove extensions that have no noted uses on WikiApiary.

There are also a significant number of extensions that were listed on this page in the past but have been removed over the years, no doubt mostly because of archival, but potentially in select cases because custom namespaces were simply removed from them (I'm not aware of any such cases myself, but it's at least a possibility). I never reviewed any of these extensions any of the times I've been working on this page, so it's possible there are some that should be readded here, if anyone cares to do a little digging (though personally I'm fine with just ignoring all of them at this point).

...On the other hand, it might be useful to anyone using dumps of old, closed wikis if all archived extensions which added custom namespaces are documented here, in which case it'd be best to have a separate section for them and keep the actual main section for active extensions.

I personally would keep them and mark them as archived.

I agree with Kghbln here.
