Draft published (thank you Elena!):

Moving to reactive mode, Normal priority.

I think it is better to have the success criteria listed in a single location to avoid getting multiple lists out of sync. could b that location, which is way more exposed to Space users. That topic could be updated on a monthly basis with Space metrics, to see how far/close are we from reaching these goals. Criteria that requires completion of a task would be linked to the related Phabricator task and would have a checkbox. Completed criteria would have their checkbox activated.

Once the list of success criteria is approved (there are still a couple of points being discussed), I was thinking of closing this task and then adding specific blockers to T227309: Deploy Wikimedia Space to production servers.

All this is easier to show than to explain in writing. I hope the explanation is clear. what do you think?

We will keep updating that topic as we meet criteria. I'm resolving this task. Thanks to everyone who contributed!
