Will you also be redirecting desktop users away from the mobile site to the desktop one?

Not planned atm. Is that done for Wikipedia?

No, I think there's a wontfix'd bug or two around somewhere. We should require it for T100402: Core should have support for mobile detection and customization to happen though.

If all blockers have been resolved, this patch should be merged/deployed:

I talked this through with Tobi. Let's deploy this and not block on the search. The search via enter is good enough for a first version.

Given the last blocker for this has been fixed, I'll try to get this done on Thursday (after the required MobileFrontend and WikimediaMessage changes have been rolled out to Wikidata on Wednesday).

Change 238396 had a related patch set uploaded (by Hoo man):
