This can't be done at the given time since most SRE people will be at SRE summit and hence no deployment (no SWAT, no train, no service, literally nothing of course except when production is on fire)

Change 516608 had a related patch set uploaded (by Michael Große; owner: Michael Große):
[operations/mediawiki-config@master] Enable feature flag for breaking Wikibase API change

Testing this during SWAT:

  1. ensure that the Wikidata-Sandbox(Q4115189) has aliases for en
  2. run the api-request to setting them to empty:{"aliases"%3A{"en"%3A[]}}
  3. outcome if bugfix successful: aliases for en are removed (easiest to check in the item's history)
  4. outcome if failed: aliases are still there and there is no change in the history
