@MrBlueSky: This issue has been assigned to you a while ago.
Could you please share a status update? Are you still working (or still plan to work) on this issue? Is there anything that others could help with?
Only in case you do not plan to work on this issue anymore, should you be removed as assignee (via 'Reassign / Claim' in the 'Action' dropdown menu)?
Thanks for contributing to Wikimedia!
@MrBlueSky: I am resetting the assignee of this task because there has not been progress lately (please correct me if I am wrong!).
Resetting the assignee avoids the impression that somebody is already working on this task. It also allows others to potentially work towards fixing this task.
Please claim this task again when you plan to work on it (via Add Action... → Assign / Claim in the dropdown menu) - it would be welcome! Thanks for your understanding!
So, this doesn't seem to be a high-priority feature request, and we don't have a project this wedges into too well. I've put this into our Backlog, so if someone gets to it we'll pick it up.
@JTannerWMF have you had any other user input on this since the original request in (checks notes) 2013?
