In T235949, we learned the way we had been bucketing contributors in the A/B test caused harmful consequences.
As a result, we now need a new approach to bucketing contributors in the A/B test.
This tasks is about creating and implementing that approach.
- We have deployed a patch that makes it so 50% of the contributors from Participating Wikis [i] who meet the criteria we set in T221195 will be shown VE as their default mobile editor and 50% will be shown wikitext as their default mobile editor.
- On Thursday, 31-October, we SWATed the config change that will "turn the A/B test back on"
