Deletion of unused templates

Hi! Please tell me why do you remove my version templates? Template:KProperty/StableBranch Please do not. They are used on library pages, e.g. on KProperty.

Hi! They were not used at the moment of deletion. I have recovered:
  • Template:KProperty/StableBranch
  • Template:KProperty/UnstableBranch
  • Template:KReport/StableBranch
  • Template:KReport/UnstableBranch
Do you also need Template:DownloadKexiUrl ?
Also, why are they templates in the first place? Are there any other pages that need them? If their purpose is to be used only in one page, they should not exist and the info should be edited directly in the page.

OK, now I see, I moved to a simplified template KexiLibs/StableBranch and alike, shared by all 3 projects (KDb, KProperty, KReport).
So I am fine with all the above deletions. Thanks!
Some background. These are templates for management purposes. I use them for years for management purposes, like on Wikipedia. The only difference is that Wikipedia uses Wikidata for that. Example for KEXI
So I'd like kindly ask you to keep all KEXI, KProperty, KReport, KDb -related templates untouched if they are used. The wikis are part of my project and obligations towards the maintenance of the projects. I also have an ongoing project to move all technical content to the from (status at

Ok, I deleted them again. Now what about used templated. Currently, many of them look like a rubbish. Can you make templates you are responsible for to look normal? I mean, I suggest adding a separate category for them, for example, Category:KexyTemplate. Then add a special template describing them, like Template:KexiTemplate (similar to Template:Template), and then include it inside those templates. Also describe their purpose, usage examples, like in as in normal templates. You can see uncategorized templates here: Special:UncategorizedTemplates.
