We just released Notifications on another batch of wiki sites
today: Bosnian, Dutch, Estonian, Farsi, Hebrew, Romanian and Spanish
Wikipedias, as well as English Wikivoyage and Simple Wikipedia.
The Echo extension has already been well received on the French, Hungarian,
Polish, Portuguese and Swedish Wikipedias, where notifications are being
used actively, though in very different ways: we're seeing a lot of
activity for talk messages on most sites, but welcome, mentions and thanks
notification levels vary quite a bit from site to site. More on this later.
Going forward, we plan to have weekly releases every Tuesday, as outlined
in this Echo release plan:
To prepare for each of these releases, we post announcements several weeks
in advance, and invite community members to help translate and discuss this
tool with their peers. We're finding that this approach helps build
productive relationships within each community and encourages a smoother,
stress-free adoption. We hope we can apply the same methodology for other
major product releases in the future.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank our community liaison team
for their invaluable help in socializing this multi-site release: Keegan
Peterzell and Jan Eissfeld have been particularly helpful, along
with Philippe Beaudette, Maggie Dennis, Anna Koval, Patrick Earley
and Sherry Snyder. Thanks as well to our fearless developer Benny Situ for
making these deployments possible. :)
Please let us know if you have any questions about this new release. Enjoy
Fabrice, on behalf of the E2 team
