[Story] beta feature status for initial article placeholder rollout
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

We want to roll out the article placeholder to the first wikis. In order to give them an easy way to try out the feature we should start with making it a beta feature.

https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Beta_Features/Package has documentation about how to do this:

  • Brief, clear name
  • Simple, instructive description
  • Consistent, figurative illustration
  • Link to brief, helpful, translatable page on MW.org
  • Link to the talk page of the above, configured as a Flow board
  • Browser and platform compatibility is configured
  • Other beta feature dependency is configured
  • Get prelim design review
  • Get prelim security review
  • Get prelim performance review
  • Make sure there is someone on point for feedback
  • Make a Phabricator project for the extension
  • Enable the Final Version of the code on Beta Cluster at least a week before you want to go for production.
  • Make gerrit change (do not merge) to the BF whitelist in mediawiki config
  • Deploy!

We no longer plan to launch this as a beta feature, but selectively enable it on wikis that opt-in.
