Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T209217: Merge WikiEditor into the MediaWiki Core.

Do you want ‘install it by default’, maybe? Merging a specific extension into core would just bring the same problems with regards to old toolbar.

What problems exactly? My understanding is that the "classic toolbar" was removed for maintenance reasons. Given that we have to maintain WikiEditor one way or another, where it lives is less consequential.

Another point: You can reach this list of prefs on the mobile site, e.g., http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-editing, but they have no effect on the mobile site. So perhaps labeling them as "Editors (on the desktop site)" would be a good idea.

Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T187342: The limited list of suggested categories don't ease categories searching.

I'm a little surprised by the decision to close this without any action, or even merging it to a related one. Category search is currently difficult for editors. Declaring categories to be "niche" and closing the request for improvements doesn't make the actual problem disappear.

We've run through everything that's been posted. We're still waiting for the pages about the Community Engagement Department, Community Programs, and Support & Safety questions.

We're about a third done. Edward is still posting pages. If it's been touched by one of us (as of {{CURRRENTTIME}}), then it's done.

I think they need to know how to make this happen ("steps to reproduce").

Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T30856: Remove classic edit toolbar from core.

@Arkanosis (and others), I think we're ready to talk about re-re-re-scheduling this. Do you have a preferred month (any time this calendar year)?

@Whatamidoing-WMF : (just talking for myself) as long as there's a week or more to make sure we can get everything working, I think it should be fine. Anytime after the 8th of October would be even easier for me.

One problem: If you choose the VisualEditor's wikitext mode as your wikitext editor, then I'm not sure what would happen if you https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random?action=submit (which VisualEditor ignores). The site's non-VisualEditor default, perhaps?
