Yes! So awesome. As a Wikipedian in Residence in my volunteer life, who
edits in many different languages, this just makes life easier.
Great work team! :)

congrats, this is really exciting.
+1 on asking someone to summarize why dewiki is opposing the release.

I'm happy to say that we released Notifications on another two dozen wiki
today: Albanian, Arabic, Azerbaijani, Belarusian, Bulgarian, Chinese, Croatian, Czech,
Finnish, Galician, Greek, Indonesia, Latvia, Lithuanian, Malay, Norwegian-Nynorsk,
Serbian, Slovak, Slovene, Sorani
Kurdish, Thai, Turkish and Welsh Wikipedias. (1)
We also released a couple bug fixes, such as a popular community request
to show all diff links in bundled messages. (2)
So we have now successfully released the Echo extension on most of the
large Wikipedias and dozens more around the world -- with very positive
community response, as summed up in last week's blog post:
Based on this favorable feedback, we now plan to release Notifications on
most remaining wiki sites in a single day, on Tuesday, October 22. This
includes about 200 Wikipedias we haven't enabled yet, as well as about
500 'sister projects' in all languages (e.g.: Wikibooks, Wikidata,
Wikisource, Wikispecies, Wikiquote, Wiktionary). This represents about 700+
sites total, leaving only a few wikis disabled, at their community's
If you are active in a community that doesn't have Echo enabled yet, we
would be grateful if you could invite volunteers to help with translations
and other tasks in our release checklist. (3)
If you have any questions or comments about enabling Echo on your site,
please leave them on our release discussion page (4), or contact me
Many thanks to our community liaison Keegan Peterzell and our developer
Benny Situ for all their hard work on these final releases. :)
