Supersedes a tracking task T41272, tasks in which are unreadable right now.

That’s not user-friendly, to be fair. I am discovering this link only from you now, when a dedicated project could’ve been found already. I see that this link is located in Search dropdown, but still, it is a way that has to be found by a user, when projects are available everywhere.

Regarding the second question, at your discretion.

I'd also opt for it to be under MediaWiki-Page-editing, preferably as either a plain workboard column, or perhaps as "milestone" subproject so that it continues to be manageable through a single workboard. (differences). Using a "milestone" subproject also has the benefit of allowing simple search queries and allowing it to be tagged directly from task creation.

The problem with it being a milestone is that they are meant to be finishable. :-)

There's merely word semantics, though. I don't see that as a problem. They also work well on #services, #TechCom-RFC, and #perf-team. In the end, both sub-projects and milestones have their own quirks in different edge cases. But for mutually exclusive board columns, a milestone is an upgrade from a workboard column (gets us: search, task creation, sub-workboard, etc.), whilst avoiding the downsides that sub-projects normally bring.

Unaware of this, I just were annoyed because of the hugenedd of MediaWiki-Page-editing and moved all open tasks to a separate workboard column.

Seeing no objections, will do

There is already a "Live preview" column on https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/board/139/ and I'd like to avoid duplication.

Yes, I was going to archive that column in favor of a milestone, which should still be visible on the workboard

@DannyS712: So I kind of object, I guess. (At least to adding more duplication.) :) Plus not sure myself if this would qualify as a subproject of MediaWiki-Page-editing. Where we'd end up again as a column on the MediaWiki-Page-editing board...

I guess not. @stjn is this still needed?
