Update: 11-Sep
Yesterday, @Whatamidoing-WMF talked about needing vi.wiki to:

  • Share a link to a "prototypical" discussion page, the contents of which, the Editing Team can use to QA the Reply Tool
  • Configure the Rely Tool (e.g. indentation and signature syntax) to match their local conventions

I've updated the task description to include these next steps and I'm assigning this task over to Sherry to communicate with volunteers at vi.wiki about the above.

Update: 11-Sep
Yesterday, @Whatamidoing-WMF talked about needing vi.wiki to:

  • Share a link to a "prototypical" discussion page, the contents of which, the Editing Team can use to QA the Reply Tool

@Whatamidoing-WMF recommended we use this page for testing: https://vi.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Th%E1%BA%A3o_lu%E1%BA%ADn

  • Configure the Rely Tool (e.g. indentation and signature syntax) to match their local conventions

Considering we have not yet heard from volunteers at vi.wiki about changes to the indentation and signature syntax the Reply Tool outputs, we will assume no changes are required, until we hear otherwise.

Deployment timing
We'd like for the Reply Tool to be made available as a Beta Feature at vi.wiki this Thursday, 17-September.

Note: We'll use this task to confirm the Reply Tool is available as a Beta Feature post-deployment and conduct more thorough testing in T262989.

The beta feature is available now, and seems to be working fine at a glance.
