Don't we also have to submit patches to mediawiki-config with config variables?

@bmansurov: Since the extension is disabled by default, I believe not. I'll double-check now.

Hey guys, @jrobell saw this today. Can we make sure it comes down? Fundraising is supposed to start on mobile tomorrow.

@Jdlrobson @bmansurov @dr0ptp4kt @greg @K4-713 @atgo

We need to deploy this asap since it is f-ing with our english campaign on mobile. @K4-713 can you confirm that this change is okay with fundraising?

Doit. Thanks for the catch.
