Event Timeline

We are good to go with a deployment for fr.wiki.

From Lukasz: "With the Parsercache file system utilization hovering around 30% for the last two months, I can't think of any blockers for further rollout."

They would also like to monitor the metrics as we are continuing to deploy to wikis who are using talk pages more heavily. I mentioned that I can keep everyone in the loop and that we can tag them in the appropriate ticket too.
