We should not move the buttons/links to the right side, or at least not without A/B or usability testing verifying that it doesn't make it less discoverable. (Regardless of whether we have the icon or text.)
The links used to be on the right side until 2013, when I implemented the change that moved them next to headings (T43729). This was motivated by local gadgets on most large wikis displaying them this way already for years (but not enwiki) and ancient usability testing from 2009 (https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Research:Section_edit_modification; F117849). More documentation about this change exists at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Change_to_section_edit_links.
The previous comments don't explain what/who exactly this task is stalled on ("If a report is waiting for further input (e.g. from its reporter or a third party) and can currently not be acted on"). Hence resetting task status.
(Smallprint, as general orientation for task management: If you wanted to express that nobody is currently working on this task, then the assignee should be removed and/or priority could be lowered instead. If work on this task is blocked by another task, then that other task should be added via Edit Related Tasks... → Edit Subtasks. If this task is stalled on an upstream project, then the Upstream tag should be added. If this task requires info from the task reporter, then there should be instructions which info is needed. If this task needs retesting, then the TestMe tag should be added. If this task is either out of scope and nobody should ever work on this, or nobody else managed to reproduce the problem described in this task, then this task should have the "Declined" status.)
