Hi Phil, I finally had some time to come up with an archive solution for Moving sensitive files outside the web root. I used your reason on the page and provided links to other articles. Someone can still see the original page by clicking on the click here link in the page which is the last revision with all the information in it. Hope that's what you had in mind.

Archiving the VEL
Hope you're doing great. As you may have noticed, there are lots of changes going on around the wiki. We eventually will be moving the VEL list of Extension over to the Archived namespace now that you guys have your own subdomain. Congratulations on that too! It will look like this page at the top, Archived:Joomla! 1.6 Development Status. It creates a more prominent, this page is archived, don't rely on it for information. Because it is a move, I will leave a redirect in place which will forward any links to the original VEL page to the Archived page. Take care Tom Hutchison (talk) 17:04, 12 June 2013 (CDT)
Ok, That looks and sounds good to me. Thanks for the update!
