[IMPORTANT] MathJax CDN end-of-life & suggested changes to third-party extensions #39
As you may have heard, will be shutting down the CDN hosting at cdn.mathjax.org on April 30, cf. https://www.mathjax.org/cdn-shutting-down/.
As part of this, we need to migrate the third party extensions to a different setup.
We decided that the current repository structure will be retired in favor of separate repositories (one per extensions).
This repository will continue to provide documentation on existing third party extensions.

Lastly, if I understand it correctly, these 3rd party extensions will not be centralized anymore, right? I'd like to hear more about this, especially how to catalog the 3rd party extensions together for discovery.

Alternatively, at least http://docs.mathjax.org/en/latest/options/ThirdParty.html should keep a record of it. Personally, I wouldn't use anything that doesn't have an official recognition. And also, this repository is how I discovered the siunitx MathJax package.
I would like to encourage you to post to the MathJax User Group to announce that you are looking for somebody to take maintenance over the project.
There won't be centralized hosting anymore but the README in this repo documents well-known third party extensions.
Third party extensions never had any official standing. We do not provide any guarantees on the code nor do we provide any kind of end-user support for them (we do try to help their developers where we can).
