Machineghost added a comment to T232953: MediaWiki Should Have a Stated Principle of Accommodating as Many People As Possible.

Well, it really seemed to me that changing the principles of an organization might warrant some institutional thought (eg. in the form of a ticket), but hey if not I'll just add it.

I should note that there are some within the MediaWiki organization who believe this should instead state:

According to https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Compatibility#Browser_support_matrix , IE versions 6-10 are under "Basic (Grade C)" which already means that "these browsers do not get JavaScript features."

With all due respect, the difference between this ticket and T178356 is the difference between saying "I'll fix things for a category of users" and saying "screw those users!"

Machineghost changed the subtype of T232285: How to use Babel.js with MediaWiki Javascript from "Task" to "Feature Request".

Honestly I wasn't sure myself. As I said, I started with a Super User question for that very reason, but then when it didn't get any responses I brought it here.
