Partner wikisar.wiki, cs.wiki, and hu.wiki

How did this decision come? T296357: Define the populations we will partner with on the Usability Improvements work lists a totally different set of wikis, and I don’t remember any discussion about this on huwiki, either. (Usability improvements as a beta feature is not disruptive—i.e. it doesn’t affect negatively users who don’t turn it on—, so I don’t think it’s wrong to deploy it without prior consultation, but you can’t partner with us without us knowing about it…)

I thought about pinging you at the time, but I assumed you and other editors would still have Samat's talk page on your watchlist. For this step, I thought it best to go back to our original partners, where I knew that if there were problems, someone would know how to contact the team.

"Partner" might not be the most accurate word here. Peter and I had been talking about deploying this (Beta Feature only) to a couple of wikis, checking it there, and then deploying to all the other wikis a few days later. Originally, we'd hoped that all three sections of this would be in the Beta Feature everywhere by the end of July.

There isn't a straight-forward way to let individual people know that the Beta Feature will be updated. T67191: BetaFeatures: Add a Notification for "A Beta Feature you have enabled has been updated" hasn't been built. Unfortunately, I think people may be surprised. They may have activated the Beta Feature more than a year ago and forgotten about it.
