Variant C/D: configuration control
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

After the code for Variants C and D has all arrived in production, we don't want newcomers to immediately start being assigned to those variants. We want them to continue to be assigned to Variant A until we explicitly start assigning them to Variants C and D.

We need to be able to configure this.
