Thanks @Aklapper, it does. One reasonably quick option for the VE team might be to copy/paste the task description above (and the link to the slide deck) to a page on MW.org. I could even do that myself, if I knew where they wanted to put it and if I knew that the description was still accurate.

Capt_Swing added a comment to T131132: Re-label the "Save" button to be "Publish", to better indicate to users the outcomes of their action.

@Jdforrester-WMF @Whatamidoing-WMF is the rationale for the "Save"-->"Publish" decision documented anywhere on wiki? I KEEP hearing from editors during interviews and talkpage discussions that this is confusing and that they have problems with it. I'd like to be able to point them to a description of the design rationale--they don't have to agree with the rationale, but at least they should be able to see that WMF has based the decision on research rather than whim.

Capt_Swing added a comment to T192019: CodeMirror syntax highlighting shows overlapping text when word-wrap (hyphens, word-break) is overridden.

Here's another example, from today. I want to challenge the assignment of 'low' priority to this bug. I encounter this error more than half of the time when I edit in Firefox. I'm disabling the 2017 WTE until it's fixed; it basically prevents me from using the feature in my chosen browser, and it's not an edge case. @TBolliger can you give me a sense of why this is being de-prioritized?

Capt_Swing added a comment to T190510: Create Design to facilitate easy Navigation to any of the three separate tables in the Articles tab.

@Sek2016 I think that since there will only be a few tables on the page (max 3?), you shouldn't need to create an in-page nave menu. Instead, you might consider providing a preview of the first N rows of each table (3? 5?) and then a "view all" button that would expand the entire table in-context, like an accordion menu.

Capt_Swing added a comment to T191008: UX feedback on dashboard landing page wireframes.

Your redesign makes sense to me, @Sek2016. I like how you reduced the size of the metrics. I like how you present more information about the purpose of the dashboard in several distinct sections below the login prompt. Enclosing the login prompt section is logical, since that's the primary call to action on the screen so we really want users to focus on that.

Thanks, @Deskana. I'll do that. Also, FWIW this occurred for me repeatedly on Chrome (Version 64.0.3282.167 (Official Build) (64-bit)) yesterday as well. However, I use a lot of the same extensions across Chrome and Firefox, because I switch frequently. So next time it crops up, I'll try disabling the extensions or using a fresh profile and see if I can duplicate it there.
