Hi PhistucK,

I had a mental note to reply to this, so here goes.

That’s right. We have an extension that extends that particular...
extension.

So, this specific extension-extension is non source controlled and
pasted in our deployment server. That’s one of the numerous things I had
to sort through.

Good news is that i’m about to upgrade the stack along with a cleanup of
all those rogue quick changes so that everything there will be source
controlled and managed properly.

Nowhere, until I push what i’m working on.

But the comment extension will be disabled altogether in the upcoming
upgrade. We will soon roll out the notes server that will replace that
service anyway.

Yes, because upgrading wasn’t a priority.

You can see upcoming version at our future-old-next-current staging
server [0].

Thanks, but no need.

Talking about the comments.

Do you think you could help us import them [1] into the new commenting
system? Tell me if you’d like to help there.
