configurable on-wiki (yet). Obviously not every Wikipedia or
every wiki will find a category-based task lists feasible or useful, and

extension is still, at this point, to help us learn which kind of tasks
to deliver to first time Wikipedia editors in English, and how to do so
effectively. Until we get that right, we aren't going to invest a huge
amount in making a fully configurable version that would be used for
permanent deployment elsewhere.
Ok, makes sense and good to know. Thank you!
Good point that such configuration will be needed if/when this extension
is ready for other Wikimedia projects. Most of the potential cases for a
3rd party MediaWiki will be probably covered with that diversity of needs.
It is already configurable (both the list of excluded categories, and
the tasks shown to new users), but through PHP variables, There are
some aspects that may require some more consideration (e.g. the
integrated guided tours). But with some work at an appropriate time, we
could look at deploying it to other projects.
The configuration is not on-wiki, though.
