OK, this sounds like a reasonable explanation. Thanks!

I don't see why promoting would be a bad option.  The Wikilabels system doesn't change everything that users do.  Arguably, a beta feature is less right than just enabling it by default.  Currently, Wikipedia:Labels works like a special page.

OK, thanks for the response.

On another note, I recently learned that the purpose of the beta features extension is to allow extensions to be tested before they can be pushed to production. This means that after some time (I think, 6 months) we will have to promote to stable or dismantle the WikiLabels extension. I don't think promoting is an option as not everyone needs this feature. So I was wondering if we still want to move the functionality from the gadget to an extension.

Right now, we build some of that JS based on configuration parameters that
are needed by the WikiLabels service back-end.  It seems that it would be
easiest to generate those files and cache them so that we can serve with
them extension code.

I'm not sure how much sense this makes long-term.  If the answer is "no
sense -- at all", then I think our next step would be getting a good
description of which parts of that JS are configured and then working on a
proposal for how we'd change things within the extension.  I can do the
description if we get that far.

As I was working on the WikiLabels extension, I had to copy over a lot of
CSS and JavaScript files to the extension folder. I suppose it's fine by
itself, but I was wondering if those files will continue to be used outside
the extension? If so, we should keep them where they are and load them
dynamically in the extension (as it's done in the gadget). What do you
