These extensions now cannot be downloaded with Special:ExtensionDistributor,
and all old links pointing to SVN locations stopped working (e.g. links on
). I think there are still plenty of people out there that might have
older MediaWiki installs and might want these or other obsolete extensions.
Anyone using an old version should always be using the extensions for
their branch, like this for Userip on 1.11:
Any old links that pointed everyone to trunk indiscriminate of version
were wrong, probably left over from before we started branching
extensions, and they should be fixed anyway. The trunk extensions
were not guaranteed to work with old MediaWiki versions to begin with.
