I no longer agree with myself, and I apologize. Feel free to delete or ignore all the BS.

@jrbs Sounds like a plan. He does not respond to pings (which makes sense because he doesn't really seem to use Wikipedia). His talkpage on meta contains a couple of questions that he hasn't responded to. Maybe he has another (non-WMF) account but he doesn't mention it on his userpage.

@Aklapper Thank you. The page isn't very clear, but TNegrin is probably his manager.

@Luke081515
But... Jdlrobson said the goal of this task was to "to track the work to disable the public accessible/public facing parts of Gather". And now this task is about development of Gather elsewhere??!?

@Jdlrobson
I don't know who your manager is. Do you mean Jkatz (WMF)? or User:TNegrin (WMF)?? I can't reach either of them. Who is your manager and how can I contact him or her? You can invite him/her to comment here, I am unable to contact them at the moment.

Yeah, you confused me quite a bit. TBH I am still confused. What is the name of this manager and how can I reach him/her? A patch to disable only the publicly visible bits of Gather is (of course) not a correct response to an RFC that says that Gather needs to be totally disabled.

@Aklapper Ehm, me too, sorry. I am talking about "Disable Gather's public facing features", the text inside span.phui-header-header. That was a mistake by the task author. I corrected his mistake and explained that the proposal is not the RFC. The task author believed that the proposal was the RFC, that is why he gave this incorrect title. Please check the history so you can see I am telling the truth.

@Aklapper The author reverted me at first, but stopped doing that when I explained that he misunderstood what an RFC was.

@Bawolff Then you shouldn't have a problem with my suggestion to re-read it, in case you missed something.

@Legoktm
In IT, uninstall is never synonymous with disable. They are two different words with two different meanings. But that still doesn't explain why disabling/uninstalling Gather should be split into two (or three) separate tasks. Nor does it explain why this one needs to be the one that only deals with the public facing parts of Gather.

@Aklapper I did read it. I even re-read it because you asked me to. But I still don't understand.

@Aklapper Why do you revert it to the wrong version? Have you read the links in the description? The proposal failed and was unanimously rejected by the community. The RFC received almost unanimous support.

@Aklapper Ehm, that proposal was rejected, so it is worthless. The RFC is the thing that should be acted on, not the failed and rejected proposal. Please check the links in the description.

No, that is not gonna happen. This task is about disabling Gather as a whole. If you want to create another task to remove the public parts of Gather then feel free to do that, but I do not understand why you would, because Gather's public facing features are a subset of Gather.

Do you honestly think that we won't notice the fact that this ticket is about disabling Gather's public facing features instead of disabling Gather.
