Change 577033 had a related patch set uploaded (by Samwilson; owner: Samwilson):
[operations/mediawiki-config@master] Enable watchlist expiry on Beta Cluster

@ifried: do you want this to not be enabled on any beta cluster wikis? (Question from @DannyS712 on the patch.)

Consensus is that we can enable it on all betawikis, and change that if we want in the future.

I've scheduled it for today's swat.

There's nothing much to QA yet, I think (other than that nothing has broken with $wgWatchlistExpiry being enabled).

Did some regression testing of Special:Watchlist and watching and unwatching pages on English Wikivoyage and Wikidata.

Also tried to reproduce the moving bug mentioned in T245213#5957179, on different English beta wikis (incl. wiktionary, wikiquote, wikisource, wikibooks). I could not reproduce the bug.

ifried moved this task from Product sign-off to Done on the Community-Tech (Kanban-2019-20-Q4) board.

I have tested, and watchlist expiry is now enabled on beta wikis. I'm marking this as done.
