in context of provided a PR which changed the logic to delete configurations stored as AEM pages:
PagePersistenceStrategy#deleteConfiguration() using PageManager API, but falling back to the current behaviour in case the Resource cannot be adapted to Page. This as expected causes a Delete replication action when the content was published before.
this ticket is only about this change in delete behavior, the reference provider part is handled in WCON-42.
thanks , i've applied this change
