Deploy ReferencePreviews as beta feature on no- and nnwiki
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Motivation
Both arwiki and dewiki now has ReferencePreviews, and both nowiki and nnwiki has expressed interest in tryiing out this awesome solution.

I've started threads about this on both projects; w:no:Wikipedia:Tinget#Utprøving av «reference previews» and w:nn:Wikipedia:Samfunnshuset#Utprøving av «reference previews».

At nowiki we use an opinion polling (not voting!) to figure out if we really want this, and so far it seems to be a pretty clear trend. At nowiki a common minority group often complains weeks or moths after something has been discussed, but in this case I believe there is consensus.

At nnwiki such questions are easier to answer, and if Ranveig says yes, then it is a go!

Hold on until after 5. June 2019, that should be enough.

Localization is done for both language variants, and I've asked the communities to review the translations. Please tell me if there are anything left that we should do.

Target date
Hold on to after 5. June 2019, the polling goes for one week at nowiki.

Acceptance Criteria
Even if the two Norwegian projects should be treated equally, one of them might choose not to use the extension.

Hi @jeblad, could you confirm that both community consensuses voted for rolling out reference previews? Thank you!

Sorry @Lea_WMDE, I did not notice the post. Norwegian Bokmål Wikipedia has 14 pro and none against the reference preview. (nowiki) I have updated the description with a link to the archive. If someone is against something at nowiki they tend to be very vocal, so this is a pretty sure consensus. Norwegian Nynorsk Wikipedia is slightly confusing, as only one admin has answered my post. (nnwiki) It is a much smaller community, and it is very much less arguing at nnwiki. I would say it is consensus when Ranveig has spoken, but I could be wrong. If you want me to set up a poll at nnwiki I can do it.

Made a poll at nnwiki.

Result is 3 for use of this, and non against. (Utprøving av «reference previews») One of the three is me, so not exactly overwhelming response. ;)

:) Thanks for your effort @jeblad! We are currently discussing the date for general beta deployment, and if that is soon enough, we would do the deploy to nn and no wiki as part of it. If it turns out to be more in the future, we will do the deploy sooner for you.

A quick update on this: We're aiming to deploy Reference Previews as a beta feature on all wikis by end of October.
