There was a heads up in Tech News a few weeks ago, but will also post specifically on Commons.
The total amount of feedback from the Wikipedias (after Tech News) and Wikidata can be found here:
Met with @Harej. We talked about what we could do generally and he should come back with a more specific request.
@dchen Have you seen my email? It contains requests for lacking information that is currently blocking me.
The scope has become broader.

I've sent out a request for translations.

I've put up a very basic landing page here:
Tech News delivered; @Trizek-WMF has agreed to put up the banner and I've written the text to be used.

I've edited to make it fit with the normal Tech News style; please make sure the information is still correct. (:

Affected wikis have been notified and it's been added to the next issue of Tech News, which will go out on Monday.

I'll take a look at this. @Harej, I've scheduled a meeting next Monday.

Since the strings are handled and published individually, I suppose this would have to be for strings over a certain size?
Will go out on Monday.

Also add that if there are problems, they can be fixed if quick feedback.
syntax highlighting (like web, but cleaner colours)
toolbar (like insert menu)

There might be other languages where the same thing would be helpful, but in that case we should probably implement it on a per-language basis.
Uh, so this is not going to be easy.

The name probably shouldn't include "ipa", as there might be communities that have added pronunciation templates for audio links that don't use IPA.
What @Tgr said, basically. What "notify the other communities" means isn't self-explanatory, but might be as simple as an item in Tech News.

Do you have a rough idea when we could expect this in production?
@Salgo60: It has been tried.

Apparently this worked for 2018/05. No idea why it didn't for the previous two weeks.

As far as I can tell this is not the same problem as for T139380, but I could be mistaken. We had this problem for T213942 but as far as I can tell we successfully worked around it for Tech News 2019-04.

Do you have a rough idea when the fix might be in production?

Is this done and will be deployed next week? (It's been added to Tech News.) I can't see that in the task, but I could be missing something?

In small batches, because MassMessage seems to be choking on large taget lists – the first attempt ran through the first 20%, then started claiming readonly for the remaining pages.
Failed MassMessages have been resent.
Yeah, we had about 440 failed deliveries.
@Tgr gave me a script to find out which wikis hadn't got the delivery. I'll try to send it out again.
I've pinged @Jseddon for a CentralNotice banner, but I don't have CentralNotice admin rights myself, unfortunately.
(I've also emailed @Jseddon to make him aware of the problem and see if he can put up something based on what we've said previously in time. If he can, great. If not, that's what happens in emergencies.)
For some for me unknown reason, not all wikis on the target list have been getting the MassMessage. Some have. I don't know what's causing the problem.
