Purpose

For archiving extensions in a way that removes them from standard view, but is still accessible in revisions history. This allows the wiki to both respect the original contributor by not completely removing their work, while reducing the amount of content that may inadvertently cause confusion or problems for sysadmins and developers. Also add the page to Category:Archived extensions.

Usage
