- make VisualEditor opt-out rather than opt-in.

|Resolved||Zabe||T276851 DiscussionsTools and VisualEditor for Wikibooks|
We typically like for deployment discussions [i] to be open for a week before taking any action.
As such, I've set a reminder to check back in on the discussion [i] on Friday, 12-March.
In the meantime, I've added this task as a sub-task of T276498.
Moving forward with offering the Reply Tool, the New Discussion Tool and the VisualEditor at en.wikibooks is okay with us.
Before doing so, @Urbanecm / @Zabe: can you please confirm how you are planning to make the Reply and New Discussion Tools available at en.wikibooks? E.g. as opt-in Beta Feautres? As features that are available by default for all users? Something else?
enable DiscussionsTools by default (like at Meta)
The proposed patch by @Zabe would currently make the Reply Tool enabled by default, but the New Discussion Tool only available as a beta feature. Also, at Meta, both of them are only available as a beta feature (not opt-out as you wrote). So I think you need to clarify the details :)
As one of the developers, I'd actually suggest using the configuration proposed by @Zabe – it's how it's configured on several other wikis, and we'd prefer having fewer variants to test.
Also, the New Discussion Tool still has some known issues (in particular cases where the interface reverts back to the old version: T276495, T270323; and other blocker tasks of T271964), and we don't want users who didn't sign up to be beta testers to run into them.
