It’s now been more than one cycle that the new PDF export has been available (since 14.2) and we need to decide what we do with the old PDF export. Right now there are still 48 issues open for it at Loading...
I’m proposing that:
- We officially declare it a deprecated feature, i.e. we (the XWiki Dev team) stop supporting it. This means closing as won’t fix all issues from Loading... that don’t affect the new PDF export and for those that do, simply remove the “oldcore - PDF Export” component.
- We either move it Contrib or move it to the Attic
- It might be a bit too early to move it to the Attic so we might want to first move it to Contrib and create a jira project for it, copying issues (maybe limited to bugs only) from Loading...
- Since it’s been there for long it’s possible some of our users have complex setups or custom code for the old PDF export and they’d prefer to see it moved as a contrib extension where community members may want to continue working on it.
