[operations/mediawiki-config@master] DiscussionTools: Enable new topic tool by default on labs

https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/656572

After talking with @Ryasmeen, we came to think there is value in keeping the New Discussion Tool deployed as a beta feature on the beta cluster initially [i] to ensure the pre-deployment QA we have planned [ii] will happen in an environment that closely resembles the environments where it will be available.

Once we verify the tool is working as expected in this environment, we can graduate it to an opt-out setting on the beta cluster.

i.e. next week?

@ppelberg @Ryasmeen Can we enable the tool on labs and testwiki? @iamjessklein keeps runnning into this issue while testing.

Considering the New Discussion Tool has not yet been deployed to any production wiki as a beta feature, I'm inclined to think the thinking in T272076#6752917 still holds. Tho, perhaps y'all are seeing something I'm not. cc @Ryasmeen.

@Esanders: what issue is that?
