Triage Stage: UnreviewedAccepted

Couldn't agree more, especially since it's trivial to vendor it for whomever needs it.

comment:2 Changed 4 years ago by Tim Graham

I've never used it myself.

from 2011 mailing list thread:

Carl: +1

Paul M: +0 on webdesign, since it's functionality that's probably in transient use by the more invisible members of our community.

Markus G: I'd miss it even though it's just a tiny piece of code and trivial, it's quite useful when you mock up a site and thus need some text to get a feeling for its layout when there's lots of text involved. I am sure, as you say, there are quite a few people out there who would miss it too.

Gabriel: As for webdesign, why not roll the one piece in it (the marginally-useful lorem tag) into the main library and deprecate the hook in contrib?

Such a good idea. I might actually use {% lorem %} now that it's reliably there.
