This follows a conversation with @dgeb today. The thinking is that keeping the old extensions, and the old negotiation rules, online does more harm than good, as we don’t want people to use them anymore nor do we want to support them going forward.
Deprecate the experimental extension system.
- the safe: false declaration isn’t needed now that we have
jekyll-redirect-from on the whitelist.
- Jekyll auto regeneration was causing the gem versions to be printed
constantly, so we now disable that printing in the Gemfile.
@ethanresnick - I'm glad you updated the docs since I was about to start implementing the now-deprecate extensions. I'm curious what the plan moving forward is. Is there some place I could follow along with the discussion?
Yes, in #957
