But, do you have RfC started?

Sorry, I'm not sure what you mean. A vote from the community on this? As the appearance of the main page was not altered, and this was a purely technical change, we didn't think one was needed.

Yes, vote from the community.

Is one needed? Most contributors who edit the templates were involved in this, and so presumably approve, and we were careful to ensure there is no change from the perspective of other contributors or readers.

We usually need it per https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Requesting_wiki_configuration_changes

But, in this case, I want to @Aklapper or anyone from Readers-Web-Backlog say is it needed or no becuase I am not sure.

Ok, I will make patch and deploy it at Monday.
