So you know this change has not been rolled out yet on Enwiki, and when or if other wikis do it remains to be seen.

Why was this task even opened then. The title said "is", implying it's been rolled out.

Sorry should have been more clear.

It looks like this change has been partially implemented. IABot is inserting "url-status=alive". Unfortunately, "alive" is not valid; please use "live" instead.

I am marking this as resolved since the reason it was reopened, has been resolved. @Jonesey95 See T232279 .
