If we're doing this.
@thiemowmde Please let us know (for Tech News purposes) when the deployment has been scheduled. (:
I like that idea a lot in principle; but it's important to bear in mind here that the image captions shown in-article are entirely local to the article itself and stored in the article wikitext, and have nothing to do with the Commons captions (structured or otherwise).
Makes sense for an announcement?

We'll meet with some of the Structured Data folks on Tuesday to discuss this.

Assuming this was kept form the parent task without any specific need for this subtask to be announced. If that's a mistake, please re-add it.

Have you considered strategies for identifying candidates for caption addition/translation based on their usage in Wikipedia articles of interest, rather than attempting to identify random image candidates directly from Commons based on their captions and work back to Wikipedia articles? One idea that comes to mind is that we could populate caption addition/translation suggestions by querying caption info for articles the user visits as the user browses. Another idea is that we could do something like identify candidates used in (random members of) the top 100 or 1000 articles for a target wiki.
We met last week and worked on the next steps, which will include talking to relevant parties to set up a discussion where we can get a fair idea of what the community thinks. We want to avoid both editors' gut reaction without having read the relevant information, and overselling something.
Keeping the community informed has basically been relaying the information that the PDF renderer has been "a few weeks away" (which it consistently has been to best of our knowledge) which has always turned out to be another few weeks. Hopefully this will soon be done, for single articles.

This seems to have been smoothly launched.

Let's assume it was a temporary problem and call it resolved and I'll create a new ticket if it persists.
OK, maybe a temporary hickup, seems to be working again now – both a test run and the actual newsletter seems have been delivered.
This is currently keeping Tech News from being delivered.

So will this be in production before or after Tech News goes out on Monday?
That's the tag to flag something for potential inclusion in Tech News, yes.

Also posted here because of the English Wikipedia local descriptions/Wikidata descriptions relationship:
Since this has been marked for inclusion in Tech News:
Will this be in production next week?

I see this has been marked for inclusion in Tech News, but it's actually not used anywhere anymore, right? It's fully migrated?

Yes, that makes sense to me. As soon as we have a date for the switch, we'll include it in Tech News and write an update on that page. That should be about the right level of community communication for this.

I'll be at a conference tomorrow; if anything specific would require our attention, @Whatamidoing-WMF will be around late afternoon/evening UTC.

I don't think the listed wikis need a banner.
A MassMessage has been delivered to the wikis.

Our team support email address is probably the safest way to get our attention if something is important and urgent, so it doesn't risk getting lost because one person is out of office or too swamped with other work.
Apr 5 2019
I've created a message and asked for translations, and will send it out on Monday, which is also when the Tech News issue including this will go out. I've also pinged @Trizek-WMF to see if we could add another banner warning people ahead of time.
@Krinkle Thanks, very helpful.
Apr 3 2019
OK, thanks, I've rewritten it to something very generic (so editors who've seen it knows it has been fixed) and linked to this discussion for those who want the details.
Apr 2 2019
Yes, I'd say it is.
@Jdlrobson: Is the User-notice tag mainly because of the production issues on Wiktionary (edit: eh, Wikivoyage, of course)? If so, is this a "there was a problem but it was [hopefully] fixed" when this goes out on Monday? Or will it, five days from now, require action from the editors?
Edit: Nevermind. My mistake.
Is this still relevant for a Tech News update? In that case, how do we best phrase it?
Apr 1 2019
This has been done.
@Harej No hurry from our side, take whatever time that makes sense for you, but I just wanted to check in and make sure we hadn't missed any communication from your side?
