As for other cases, this is actually an effort by multiple people, but I'm working around Phab limitations.

@Elitre, are you planning to work on this task during this quarter?

Quim, we expect to be done with the entire Phase 6.1 project by mid-quarter. We are hoping to send a message to each of these communities today, as soon as we check a few important details (including the tentative date).

The rest of Phase 6 ("6.2", if you want to call it that) is not scheduled. It is blocked by technical issues.

Phase 6.1 was completed on Feb 1st.

I'm now busy with tasks such as updating, prepping for further messaging.

We just messaged the wikis at to inform them that the visual editor will reach them at some point (example).

I regularly check those 49 wikis for reactions, BTW. I'm actively engaged in related conversations on a few of those ATM.

Elitre set Security to None.

Yet another reminder that VE is coming was sent to the 49 Phase 6 wikis (based on whether they had good progress in translations or not).

Elitre changed the task status from Open to Stalled.Mar 4 2016, 5:57 PM

We're focusing on other deployments - but may send stuff to translate related to Phase 6 at some point this month.
