First Open edX Named Release Without This Functionality



This repository was previously in the edx-solutions space and has only been lightly maintained since 2020. We would like to archive and move this repository to edx-unsupported or give ownership of this repository to another organization that is more interested in maintaining it.


The entire repo will be moved to openedx-unsupported. GitHub - openedx/edx-notifications


We do not have a replacement for this repository.

I’ve used this repository in some of the versions and have made it work up till lilac even.

Is the plan to remove only the repository ? Or some of the code related to it in the platform too will be removed ?

We’re only planning on moving the repository to a new unsupported organization and discontinuing support for it (i.e. no more dependency upgrades/maintenance). If another group in the community is interested in taking ownership of it, we’re happy to turn it over to them.

Since we have passed the acceptance date, I have now moved this ticket into ‘Accepted’.
