@greg heads up we are looking to do this in around 2 weeks time.
We'd like to only surface this to beta users of the mobile site for the time being
Is there a separate process we need to just deploy this extension to English Wikipedia or is the above page all we need to follow?

@greg "Make sure the extension is automatically branched. [1]"
Newbie question - what does this mean?

Tentatively scheduled for 2015-03-24 10:00 SF (ie: the mobile window, just because :))

@Nemo_bis, it's for 'beta users of the mobile site for the time being'.

I'm good with that.

hmm, just in case, how long would it take to disable the extension temporarily, if need? More than a day?

@Eloquence. We are pushing back 2 days in order to deploy on test wiki first. I think that is a prudent move. New deployment date for en wiki beta is Monday, 3/30.
