I've been a Wikipedia editor since 2002 on the English Wikipedia and a few other Wikimedia projects (see my personal account). In May 2012 I joined the Wikimedia Foundation as the "Product Manager" for the VisualEditor Team (now called the Editing-team). I'm now the Lead Product Manager for the Contributors-Team.

Part of this idea seems very odd to me. Preferences are (with some very rare exceptions) exclusively private, such that not even sysops can see them (only those with database access). Why would this preference be different and be publicly logged when it changes? How would you explain to users in the preferences form such that they had consented knowingly to such publication? Would this also adjust the workflow of reseting preferences?
Looks great, thank you! I think the "two issues in a year" level of bugs is more than adequate to keep going as-is. :-)
Yup, deployed in wmf.18.
Yup, all looks good. Thanks! https://integration.wikimedia.org/ci/job/mwext-VisualEditor-jsduck/6509/console

Aha. Last successful pass was on integration-slave-*trusty*-1001 with https://integration.wikimedia.org/ci/job/mwext-VisualEditor-jsduck/6484/console – is this a problem with the jessie host images?
