Open, MediumPublic


Per there's clearly overwhelming support for this (with a few holdouts). It's time to finally make the new code the default, and then fix any issues.

I believe this is close to being ready to be merged in. I'm tagging this with sprint 80 for Reading Web for Tracking, and will ask @Jdforrester-WMF if the merges can happen during that sprint.

Sorry for forgetting about this.

This change is now live on the Beta Cluster version of the English Wikipedia. See for an un-typed gallery that's now using mode=packed rather than mode=traditional, for instance.

If this is OK, please confirm, and then we can move ahead with deploying to production.

This is still lingering in beta configs. If it's a dead issue, I'd rather revert the beta changes than keep things out of sync for another 2 years. I don't see the difference in rendering, btw.
