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.

Feature is now live on Meta.
How hard would it be to get a modern version of npm in CI?
I was thinking late August?
We can't just keep flipping this back and forth. We put these back in a year ago or so, having taken them out, having put them in…
If you're talking about the width of the edit summary field, that has not significantly changed (a few pixels) – it's been 80% width for a while now, but I agree that it should take the full width instead. However, this isn't the right venue for that discussion, as it's unrelated.
Thanks, Greg. I'm marking this as Open as it's no longer stalled waiting for information, but also as Lowest priority, as it's not something we in the Contributors team at large are going to work on any time soon. I'd be happy to see a volunteer take this on, though I note that they'd need some support from us to get the code reviewed and a follow-up performance review undertaken to see whether it would be OK; if someone does want to take this on, please understand that that might take a while, and do talk to us before spending too much time!

Probably a transient RB caching issue. :-(

This should now be fixed. Sorry, all.
Indirectly. Hence the screaming in the terminal output when you run npm install.

This is now done.
It's the blinky blue ball that turns into a bit of educational info for newbie users on the Link and Cite controls.

Margin's coming from the .oo-ui-popupWidget-footer class. Maybe it's new? I guess Notifications should null it back out, at least for now.
BTW, the checkboxes on the Beta Features tab of Special:Preferences aren't OOjs UI, they're faked with old technology (which is why they look a bit different); we should probably switch that over to OOjs UI so we only have to fix this once. Have created T171324: The BetaFeatures tab of Special:Preferences should use OOjs UI for that.

Also, welcome! :-)

OK, this has been done. We want to drive up the standards over time by removing exceptions, but I'm declaring this Resolved.
Roan says this is now complete, FWIW.
I'm declaring this Resolved. There are only two instances left in Wikimedia Cloud VPS [https://tools.wmflabs.org/openstack-browser/project/editor-engagement editor-engagement], and both are being used.

This shipped last year via 9e521cde710467d7192b4933b61e2a45e870ff89 in v0.17.7.
I think that works for me. Happy to implement if you're OK.
