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.
Happy to rename this to Please enable WikiEditor in new installs of MediaWiki by default and mark it as blocked by that if others agree.
OK, I've made a patch to make this use the autonym when setting the display value of the button on selection.
Last step is to insert WBMI into the general gate, which I'll get done later today, but this as-written is now done.
We've now replaced the table with a responsive layout (in T204934) so this looks vaguely fixed to me:
Oh, right, now I understand the concern you have. Yes, this different display is because the Commons community has customised its AbuseFilter error messages to look like this (though they look slightly worse given the context), and Beta Commons has a copy of these hacky templates and styling (whereas the Labs instance is running vanilla MediaWiki).
There's an implicit H1 for the wikitext block that we've screwed up by moving our content above. In designs for the future we'll split this all up with tabs, but not sure what @Ramsey-WMF wants done right now, if anything?

This is a dupe of T207683, right?

Option 3 sounds sanest in terms of fixing/avoiding the issue without a costly migration.

This is now live in production for privileged groups (in nag-mode for existing passwords, and enforcing for new passwords).
Soft deprecation done. Next is removal from use in Wikimedia production, then hard deprecation, then removal (in MW 1.35 if we get the rest done by MW 1.33).
Local look-ups still work:
Now done, with a prefix:
Yes, https://doc.wikimedia.org/oojs-ui/master/php/ hasn't worked for since September.

Cookie-licking this for the Infrastructure team.
This looks done:
Cormac is working on this.
Sorry, have updated the link to be a proper one that should last: https://logstash.wikimedia.org/app/kibana#/dashboard/default?_g=(refreshInterval%3A(display%3AOff%2Cpause%3A!f%2Cvalue%3A0)%2Ctime%3A(from%3Anow-7d%2Cmode%3Aquick%2Cto%3Anow))

Can we delete all the 1.33-wmf.8 branches? They're cluttering up auto-completes etc..
Now that T211237 is resolved, this is fixed in Beta too:
Now hot-deployed to production. Seems fixed to me.
@daniel can give more details about the inner parts of Wikibase, but we had to disable this to unbreak WBMI :-(
Marking as Resolved. Will re-open T204748 instead, pending on Daniel's comments about needing to change things in Wikibase. :-(
This also works in safemode – https://zh.m.wikivoyage.org/wiki/%E7%AB%B9%E5%8C%97?safemode=1 – so it's probably a site script/default gadget that's broken.

Sorry, good point.
Done in 434432324ff0ffd12718a90d9a7943eb5155f145 ish, right?
So this is now fixed by emergency-disabling the extension. I've written the patches to de-deploy it, but I'll wait for sign-off from the team that this was an intended consequence of their work. https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/c/operations/mediawiki-config/+/478726/
Oops, should have remembered this; my fault, sorry.

Perhaps, though a date comparison is a little slow. We could do what we did for enabling the visual editor – backfill opt-outs for the small number of accounts that have edited in the past year and then change the default. But it's fiddly.
"An editor has suggested that this needs a citation. Do you have one?" // "Replace with a citation" maybe?
Absolutely. The two standard design affordances on the Web for "this a thing you can click and it will change the page somehow" are blue coloured text with a hover underline effect, and a graphical representation (to some level of abstraction) of a button. This discussion is proposing doing neither of those things.
We don't use PHP 5.x anywhere anymore. Is this still relevant or can we close?
WFM. Maybe "citationNeededInline" vs. "citationNeededEncapsulate" for https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Citation_needed_span ?
