I made an entry for ifconfig now cancelled just saying it is deprecated which is a useful information. This does not concern ip. Should I add ifconfig note again?

Hi, when i added the stuff for ip, i figured why even mention a deprecated command, so i removed it. But thinking about it again,
you are right it is usefull information. If someone comes from another unix, or older linux, and he or she wants to use ifconfig
they should find Info on it in a wiki-search.
I now added it in a Note: section under the heading for the "ip" command, because i still don't think we should give
a deprecated command a whole section.

ifconfig (interface configuration) is a system administration utility in Unix-like operating systems to configure, control, and query TCP/IP network interface parameters from a command line interface (CLI) or in system configuration scripts. It is deprecated: the alternative is called ip.
