Change 144256 had a related patch set uploaded by Legoktm:
Add maintenance script to send messages

https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/144256

Will the maintenance scripts which send email notifications also (need to)use this for on-wiki messages?

What sources are in scope for the script, in particular will it take care of things like substituting pseudo-variables of https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Single_User_Login_finalisation_announcement ?

I think so.

things like substituting pseudo-variables of
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Single_User_Login_finalisation_announcement ?

The current patch just adds a backend/job class for server-side messages, and then I plan to have a script in CentralAuth which uses the MMServerSideJob class to send out the message properly.
