In preparation for production deployment and community feedback, the extension should be deployed on the beta cluster to see how it behaves on real article pages and with other extensions already deployed.
Needed for beta deployment of the extensions:
- Security Review for ChessBrowser: Requested in T244076
- Deploy on beta sites: Target March 2020
- Design Review: (instructions)
- Performance Review: (instructions)
- Deploy on production wikipedias as a beta feature: Target June 2020
- Deploy as default on all wikipedias: Roughly December 2020 (depending on feedback)
This extension is being developed to fulfill a longstanding desire of the English Wikipedia community for interactive chess content in encyclopedia articles (2019 discussion; 2016 discussion; Previous attempt by Chess WikiProject), but implemented in a way which does not have resource costs on non-chess-related pages (See concerns at Interface Admin Noticeboard).
