For the initial deployment of TemplateStyles to content wikis we should identify two suitable wikis to talk to template editors about TemplateStyles on. Reasonably sized – not too small, because they need template editors, but not too big, because it makes an initial conversation where we can pay a lot of attention to the editors more difficult.
Contributors from the Swedish and Russian Wikipedias have shown interest.
A suggested plan (T164927#3726517) is once the PM of the project is ready, to approach the Swedish Wikipedia with a proposal to enable the feature. The same for Russian Wikipedia once done with Swedish. Contributors from the Russian Wikipedia have asked that a bug be addressed (T168333) prior to deployment. Successfully working with that community will need some resolution on that task.
- Draft communication to Swedish and Russian Wikipedias about enabling this feature
- Post to the local Village Pumps for community discussion
- Address any questions or feedback from the community
- Enable the feature
