# Wiki pages (plug-ins) that should be deleted

Reported by: Owned by: Ryan J Ollos Ryan J Ollos low TracHacks normal Michael Renzmann 0.11

### Description

I'm opening this ticket to start listing wiki pages for plug-ins that should be deleted from trac-hacks. It would be good to clean up the trac-hacks a little bit since it is getting a bit bloated and has many dead pages.

True. I have something like that on my to-do list, but was short of time
to actually take care of it. So your help is more than welcome, thanks!

Yes, please do, and post the list here. I won't be able to weed these
pages/Subversion subdirectories out at once, but I'll try to take care of
it as quickly as possible.

Bye, Mike

On a related issue, I cleaned up all the tickets that did not have a Component specified, as can be seen in this report.

### comment:4 Changed 10 years ago by Ryan J Ollos

I'm taking a more obvious approach and tagging all of the adandoned pages with abandoned and removing the version tags so that the listing don't appear on the main page.

[[ListTagged(abandoned)]]

I'll go ahead and remove the pages listed here since I now have elevated permissions.

### comment:7 Changed 9 years ago by Ryan J Ollos

Looks like I chose a bad name for tagging the pages, since some of those listed as 'abandoned' are possibly relevant projects that are just not developed in a long time. I left those in place and only pages for "Plugins" that have no source code and are obviously spam or projects that were never started and are quite old.

### comment:8 follow-up:  10 Changed 9 years ago by Ryan J Ollos

Looks like I don't have permission to remove the svn directories for the following wiki pages that have been removed, so I'll leave this ticket open:

• AutoTrac
• ChangeLogPlugin
• ChartingModulePlugin
• DmsSorucePlugin
• DragAndDropPlugin
• GooTestPlugin
• LuntbuildTracIntegrationPluginIntegration
• MarketPlugin
• ModuleAnkurIntegration
• ScompiProjectPlugin
• SuportTicketPlugin
• SvnRevisionPlugin
• TracGitPlugin
• TracNav
• WantedPagesMacro
• WikiPageNamePlugin

On the main page, under WikiStart#Miscellany, the following replacement should be made: ChangeLogPlugin -> ChangeLogMacro.

You now have read/write permission to the complete repository. Please go ahead and remove the directories of the mentioned plugins, and please also remove the according components from the ticket system.

Feature request to the author of the TracHacksPlugin (/me looks in the mirror): add something that allows to delete hacks when necessary. This should reverse all changes that had been done when the hack has been registered.

I did it again tonight for another 16 tickets.

Thanks, I deleted a bunch of those spam tickets you flagged. Nice idea to add [SPAM] to the head of the summary. I'll then see them in my RSS feed of the timeline and delete them.

Thanks! SVN directories and Ticket Components have been removed.

Btw, do we have an Admin wiki page that lists steps to do common tasks that may not yet have been implemented in a script such as:

• Reassign an adopted project to the new maintainer
• Remove a project (as discussed in this ticket)

If not, perhaps I'll make such a page, since its nice to have the steps listed for reference each time the task comes up ... I tend to make fewer mistakes that way.

I'm also not completely clear on how I might need to update BadContent when spam is detected, so a short description of that could be added as well.

Resolution: fixed closed → reopened

Author shows ChecklistPlugin is deprecated (2 years ago, and proposed TracFormsPlugin instead).

Also as you previously pointed at ticket:5785#comment:9, still pending to update section WikiStart#Miscellany (replace ChangeLogPlugin -> ChangeLogMacro).

I'd like to cleanup and get rid of old plugins that aren't useful, but I have reservations about deleting even deprecated projects. The only projects I have deleted so far were entirely empty, or the result of project renames.

I'll wait for Michael to advise on how to proceed, but at present I think the best we can do with a project like that one is to remove the 0.11 tag so that it doesn't appear on WikiStart, which is what I did just now.

Also as you previously pointed at ticket:5785#comment:9, still pending to update section WikiStart#Miscellany (replace ChangeLogPlugin -> ChangeLogMacro).

Good point. I'm not able to edit WikiStart as far as I can tell, but let's leave the ticket open until Michael is able to.
