Event Timeline

(Removing tag I assume was here simply because it was in the parent task and automatically included; this shouldn't be in Tech News, as it's just about one wiki.)

@Tgr So, do you thing this is suitable right now or do you want to wait some time in the future?

@Dereckson thanks for pinging on this. @Deskana is now in the product owner role for this technology's rollout. I think there may be a couple outstanding questions on this, and we should defer to him on rollout.

@Dereckson would you please remind me? Does svwiki have fundraising campaigns as we approach the holidays? My recollection is no, but I figured I better I ask.

^ and @Johan I think you probably know, too.

@dr0ptp4kt Typically not, no – last year it was February–March. I'll double-check with Jessica.

Jessica confirms February 6 to March 6.

Change 394831 had a related patch set uploaded (by Jon Harald Søby; owner: Jon Harald Søby):
[operations/mediawiki-config@master] Enable TemplateStyles extension on svwiki

Uploaded patch, but will wait for @Deskana's go before adding to SWAT.

Kizule moved this task from Backlog to Doing on the TemplateStyles board.

@Deskana can we go ahead with this next week (as there is a deployment freeze for the current week)?

@Tgr Hey, sorry, I was on vacation last week. I believe we'll be good to push this out this week, but I want to make sure @CKoerner_WMF is okay with this and that we have a communication plan in place. This shouldn't take more than a couple of days, since Chris and I had already outlined what we wanted to do. (Chris, I sent you an email!)

We are running fundraising banners on svwiki at the moment. I can't see any reason TemplateStyles would interfere with them, and tested our banners on some beta cluster pages with TemplateStyles without any problems. So it should be fine to go ahead with the deployment to svwiki from that point of view.

I'll be around to monitor on the fundraising side tomorrow just in case there are any issues.

Will do it in the Thursday 19:00–20:00 UTC / 11:00–12:00 PST SWAT window.
