Wikimedia Product/Component responsibility#Skins mentions skins that are no longer deployed on WMF wikis, and it probably shouldn't.

Skins section outdated
Just acknowledging receipt. Processing in the background via email.
That outdated box is inaccurate. Modern and CologneBlue have not been removed from WMF wikis. They are hidden in preferences. They are retained for existing users and can be revealed using a special query string: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:Preferences?useskin=modern
Those 2 skins are still deployed (e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foobar?useskin=cologneblue), for users who had them set in their preferences, the skins are just not selectable via Special:Preferences anymore.
But possibly the table needs to be updated to add a row for Skin:Vector/2022?
I've updated the table. Vector 2022 is part of Vector skin. I've clarified that too.
Distinction from Developers/Maintainers?
It's seems a little inefficient to keep this list separate from Developers/Maintainers. Is the distinction still useful and worthwhile?
+1. It would be great if we could merge this there, to reduce redundancy and confusion.
Also, any ideas that will help all users of the /Maintainers page would be great. How can we make that page more useful to you/everyone, and thus more likely to be kept updated?
Consolidating the pages would in itself be useful to me personally. I don't have any other worthwhile ideas to share at the moment but will think on it.
I'm not opposed to it. The extra columns here and it all being in one place without complex sorting is what's primarily useful for me. If there's a way to retain the data and functionality and do so in a way acceptable for the other page, I'd say go for it.
I've started this process by moving the skins section over to test the waters. Edits/reverts welcome (but the former more so than the latter!).
Please keep in sync with Developers/Maintainers
Quick request: We must keep this page in sync with Developers/Maintainers. That page is the canonical location for who maintains what. If anything is added to this page without it being on Dev/Main please do the needful. cc @MHolloway (WMF) for trending edits.
Thanks! (updates have happened!)
