I will be especially grateful if the deployment process is revised according to good old Wikipedia principles: "Any changes to the software must be gradual and reversible. We need to make sure that any changes contribute positively to the community, ... in full consultation with the community consensus".
In ru-wiki we had a notice posted only two days before planned deployment without any option to object. It is anything but 'gradual deployment in full community consensus'. Please revise the deployment process to a more friendly to communities, get the feedback before deployment in a sensible manner with an appropriate time to discuss. Please hold on the deployment in ru-wiki (and maybe some other projects) and get the community feedback first.
