Deployment timing
Per what we talked about during today's team planning meeting, we are planning to make the revised Reply button appearance available within the DiscussionTools beta feature at the remaining 7 wikis (see task description) this upcoming Tuesday, 22 Nov provided no blocking issues emerge in T320685.

RE T321955#8411414: I created T323537 in an effort to distinguish between the wikis that will see an arrow before the newly-styled Reply buttons and those that will not.
