Why is this task needed / which problem does this task solve?

@Aklapper Did you read the Tracking-Neverending tag ? Why Lowest ? What is the problem ?

@Framawiki: I know what tracking tasks are, and I'd like to understand the use case for creating this tracking task and which problem this task solves, as I'm not a fan of categorization for the sake of categorization. Hence my question. :)

Thanks for your explanation, please don't change the priority before having received answers :)
This task is currently on an hidden column of Wikimedia-Site-requests so I don't think that it's a problem. Nothing will block us if we wan to close this task the day that it will be unused.

We can really expend the usage of this extension MediaWiki-extensions-FeaturedFeeds, that is really actually unused on WMF wikis. Bulletins such as Signpost could benefit. They are many samples like this across all projects.

@Framawiki: My question is which current existing problem the creation of this very task is supposed to solve. Could you please answer that?

Framawiki renamed this task from FeaturedFeed waiting for creation (tracking) to Develop the usage of FeaturedFeed extension on WMF wikis (tracking).Jun 18 2017, 12:56 PM
Framawiki updated the task description. (Show Details)

@Aklapper I've edited the description to explain my idea behind its creation.

@Framawiki: I still don't understand why you need "to track the creation of new feeds on Wikimedia wikis"...
Which problem does that solve and why is querying for tickets under Wikimedia-Site-requests with "FeaturedFeed" not sufficient?
