Description

Hello,

While looking at core#46418 being assigned to the Administration component I went to see whom the maintainer(s) might be and found it's not listed on the Component Pages.

Comparing the Trac component dropdown to the Component Pages list I also found Security, Text Changes, and WordPress.org site were missing from the Component Pages so wanted to flag but understand it's likely these others aren't real components (aside from Security).

Thanks

Administration is likely missing because it was proposed for removal during the last Trac component reorganization, but then ended up being left as is. Since it's not going anywhere anytime soon, I have no objections to adding it to the Components page.

Text Changes can probably be retired in favor of the ui-copy focus, as proposed in the same reorganization post:

Here are the components removed:
...
Text Changes (this will become a focus, for wordsmiths — needs a name)

Thanks for the reference and background @SergeyBiryukov

With >350 tickets in Administration, I'd second it's probably sticking around for a while so a page makes sense.

And that's interesting about Text Changes, I wasn't really aware of it so nice to see it naturally evolved to a focus on it's own. I guess those tickets just need to be triaged if it's to be deprecated.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
