If the Firefox extensions directory on www.mozilla.org is no longer being used, I'd like to remove those pages from the repository. It looks like all relevant pages are being redirected, but I wanted to check first before doing anything. http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-org/source/html/projects/firefox/extensions/
I don't know what that directory is, which means we haven't used it in the last 3+ years. I'm okay with removing it.
OK, the files are gone. If you need to bring anything back, let me know.
I'm confused. When I search at Google for "how do I create a thunderbird extension" the first hit is http://www-archive.mozilla.org/projects/thunderbird/specs/extensions.html which tells me that this page is highly out-of-date. I have to assume: * people still want to learn how to write Thunderbird extensions * somehow you no longer provide that information on the up-to-date mozilla.org website Consequently, people who want to learn are directed to outdated information. I would suggest one of the following possibilities: * delete the archive version altogether so Google can go about finding something more appropriate * make the above link redirect somewhere more up-to-date (perhaps something outside of mozilla.org) * restore the above content to the current site and update its content
> * make the above link redirect somewhere more up-to-date (perhaps something > outside of mozilla.org) This is our preferred option for handling archived pages, although there is not always a suitable page to redirect people to. If you know of a page to redirect that Thunderbird extension doc to, feel free to let us know (please open a different bug though since this bug is about the Firefox Extension directory).
The new Add-on Developer Hub has a page on Thunderbird add-ons here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/developers/docs/how-to/thunderbird-mobile or it could just point to the MDC Thunderbird Extensions index: https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Extensions/Thunderbird (Please file a separate bug as David mentioned if you think either of these is appropriate)
