The Editing Team committed [i] to reviewing the issues volunteers at en.wiki have experienced with the Reply Tool and determining which – if any – they see as worthy of blocking the tool's deployment as an opt-out feature on desktop (T279397).
This task is intended to be a record of the tasks the Editing Team reviewed and the determination we've made about each one. We will share this review with volunteers at en.wiki [ii][iii] to learn whether volunteers at en.wiki have reached different conclusions than we have about whether an issue ought to block the Reply Tool deployment or not. We will also seek to learn whether there are issues we did not review that we should.

|T302296||Not blocking||This issue should be resolved on 3 March, when the train with this fix arrives at en.wiki|
|T276510||Not blocking||New functionality that can, in the meantime, be achieved using the existing source editor. More in T276510#7736182.|

|T278357||Not blocking||Based on what we've talked about on-wiki [iv], signing comments with ~~~ or ~~~~~ seems rare.|
|T278355||Not blocking||Although, this ticket is actively being worked on.*|
|T279578||Not blocking||We assume people use subst templates within with replies relatively infrequently. As such, we think that for now, people needing to use a subst template within a reply can either use the source editor modify the comment they posted or bypass the reply tool entirely and use the source editor to post the entirety of their reply.|
