@Xaosflux: Has someone requested this extension to be deployed? What's the motivation behind this task?

Also, pointers are welcome. In this case https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Writing_an_extension_for_deployment

Stalling because this task is not actionable; see the link I provided for steps to follow (if this was wanted for some reason).

Well the motivation is that we have WMF projects that want this functionality - I can create a task to request that, though it would be blocked on this actually being allowed to be deployed? (Not sure if this is a chicken-egg situation)

@Xaosflux: I guess I don't really understand what this task is about. What does "reviewed for suitability" mean exactly? :-/
If this task a request to deploy an extension on a Wikimedia wiki, then see https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Writing_an_extension_for_deployment for required steps, plus please provide information which specific Wikimedia wiki(s) is requesting this. If this task is about something else, then please elaborate - thanks a lot! :)

@Aklapper this task is meant to track progress for the extension's steward to "get (it) through the review process before the extension is possibly being deployed to Wikimedia wikis"
