Hi guys,

As discussed with Howie and other PMs, I am preparing a report with recommendations for next steps on AFT5 and will have it ready for review by the end of next week.

The French pilot just ended and I ran a quick RfC with the French community last week to get their suggestions. I am now compiling all the results from all the communities we discussed this with, and will include this in our recommendations. We will also consult with the core team that is impacted by this project, so everyone will have a chance to contribute to our final decision before we publish our report.

Thanks for your patience, and we will let you know when we have a resolution next week.

All the best,

if you mean the historical data already collected, we would archive the table and figure out later if we want to change how itís exposed on labs.

Why don't we just pick a date for un-deploying the extension? Fabrice has
moved on to Multimedia and other work, and so has the lead developer on
AFT5. I don't see this getting fixed immediately, though I could be wrong.
It seems like the big surprise we don't want is for the feature to just
disappear unannounced for those articles where editors have added it, but
we can announce this adequately if we settle on a date.

What happens when we undeploy AFT5? Specifically, the data that has been
submitted? I couldn't find anything linked from
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Article_feedback/Version_5 (but I may
have missed it).
