#6584 closed defect (bug) (wontfix)

The move to meta boxes killed dbx_page_sidebar and dbx_page_advanced

dbx_page_sidebar and dbx_page_advanced were deprecated in 2.5 without warning or documentation in [6665], and without being moved to deprecated.php. I presume this is an error. dbx_post_sidebar and dbx_post_advanced were retained, despite the move to do_meta_boxes. This obviously breaks plug-ins needlessly.

Adding <?php do_action('dbx_page_sidebar'); ?> below line 185, and <?php do_action('dbx_page_advanced'); ?> below line 285 (both in edit-page-form.php) seems to fix it. But I'm not a programmer.
