@Jdlrobson Just so you're aware, there's no Tech News issue going out on Monday, since the writers will be off most of the relevant days; the next issue will be sent out on 19 April.

Since this is just about one single Wikipedia I'm not putting it in Tech News (it's easier to just reach out to that wiki directly, than inform subscribers on all wikis that English Wikipedia will be read-only for a minute or two), but as an early heads-up, I've posted on the technical Village Pump:
Variant A is translatable, you'd have to rewrite variant B somewhat to make it fit – constructions like "reason(s)" rarely work as well in other languages as in English.

I've done minor link fixing.

I like where this is going, and agree with Robin on the perspective. I just wonder if the descriptions aren't a tad complicated?

@Nardog Thanks, added to next issue. I did some minor simplification edits, to help all the en-2 or en-1 readers who don't get a translation.
@Nardog Just to make sure I understand this correctly, something like this for Tech News:

@Mvolz As a general rule we prefer to announce things in beforehand, but it's not a blocker for minor changes that won't affect editing much. If things risk being confusing or create issues for editors, it's generally better to wait a week so we get the chance to announce it (next issue will be delivered on Monday).

@Sakretsu The section tags were re-introduced and the new method of delivery was used again this week, please let us know if there's anything related to them that doesn't work.

@Mvolz Thanks for adding the user-notice tag. Is this just about the ambiguous days (the latest patch), or the task in general?
Maybe obvious, but this is keeping us from working on the upcoming Tech News issue.

I've not had time to properly dig into why, but delivering using "Page to be sent as a message" didn't work today. Tried three times; no delivery. Using body as message, the newsletter was delivered immediately.

Yes, I didn't include it in the issue going out on Monday, awaiting more clarity in this thread.

Works for me.
Something like this for Tech News? Or do you need the editors or wikis to take any other action beyond making sure they use the right CSS class?
Something simple like this for Tech News?

Just group 1 or should we announce it's about to come to group 2 soon too?

I've taken care of Tech News for this.

@Ladsgroup The announcement being that you're cleaning up user scripts, so that people might see their user scripts edited? Sure, that can go into Tech News. Feel free to suggest a few brief sentences I can base the item on if you know what you want it to say. (:

@Jdlrobson I think maybe waiting for that blog post would be a good idea, so it could go with the Tech News item?

@Nikerabbit Sounds like a good plan.
Yes, or just remove it.
I used this today! It was glorious! Less work for me (no need to manually make sure I've added all languages) and this week the Portuguese translation (pt-br) was actually delivered, after languishing on Meta for years.
Got one of them now. Have tried to deliver my message, hoping it will be delivered when I wake up. (:

@Pchelolo OK, tried again little over an hour ago, adding a whitespace. No success.
