[Wikimedia-l] Campaigns extension / ServerSideAccountCreation log - does anyone still use it?

Brad Jorsch (Anomie)
Question 1: Would anyone care if we kill the "loginCTA" campaign, which
tracks when people use the link at the bottom of Special:UserLogin to get
to the account creation page?

Question 2: Would anyone care if we remove the extension entirely from
Wikimedia wikis? Wikiapiary seems to show only one user outside of
Wikimedia.

Background: The extension needs a rewrite for AuthManager, and in
particular the "loginCTA" campaign will be a bit of a pain to keep working.
If someone is making use of the extension that's fine, but if not we may as
well not continue to spend development resources on it.

Following up on this: Since the answer to Question 2 was yes, we've done
the necessary update to Campaigns so it will continue working with
AuthManager.[1] Since no one answered Question 1, the loginCTA campaign has
been removed. It will stop showing up in 1.28.0-wmf.4, which rolls out this
week.

Hey Brad,

That sounds fine to me.

We previously used the loginCTA campaign to measure the value of that
secondary button on the login page (
ee-dashboard.wmflabs.org/graphs/enwiki_campaigns) but it doesn't need to
happen on an ongoing basis.
