Not stalled. This already went out in TechNews, we will just want to announce on Village Pump immediately when this releases to avoid any backlash.

QA is done, but let's still get an "all clear" on IRC before enabling, as we may want to address T188960: Figure out which bots mention users in summaries, how often, and decide how 'Edit summary pings' should handle bots

If it's easy (which I think @MaxSem said it was), could we possibly do T189067 before releasing? Then we can let folks know they have a way to link without pinging, and this would address the Twinkle use case, specifically.

If it's a small and low-risk task, I'm all for it. But I think we can release without it and add it as a fast follow if there is any risk.
