What did you do? ================ 1. Saw a page linking to https://developer.mozilla.org/samples/domref/mozGetAsFile.html What happened? ============== Can't edit or remove it, because it is a static file on the server. I don't have access to it. Outdated code samples, which we can't maintain, are bad. What should have happened? ========================== It should have been a (live) sample code on the MDN page. Is there anything else we should know? ====================================== Can we get a list of the directories and files please? The plan is probably to migrate or remove them from where they are now and put them on MDN directly.
Thanks Luke! I will probably file some sub bugs to migrate the files into the relevant Canvas/CSS/DOM/XUL content areas. Although, I guess XUL migration won't happen as we don't maintain those docs at the moment. Do we have traffic or access data for these directories/files?
Hmm ... no, we don't. :( We track clicks to *external* links, but since these URLs are at "developer.mozilla.org" we don't measure them. Do we need to measure them to do this cleanup?

It would be better, I think. We can't just delete stuff, if there is a ton of people accessing them. Once we remove links to those static resources from our wiki content, traffic should go down there. If it is still too high after a while, we also need to create redirects probably.
Filed https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1078676 for the measurement work.
(In reply to Luke Crouch [:groovecoder] from comment #1) > https://pastebin.mozilla.org/6691078 Luke, this pastebin is now empty. Can you please attach a list of the directories and files under /samples/ to this bug please? Thanks!
