Hey Jan,

We emailed you a week ago to get the ball rolling on this, but didnít hear back from you.

We assumed you had it all covered already, given your amazing work on launches like these in the past :)

Keegan and I will follow up with you again privately, so we can plan our next steps together.

If necessary, we can push back the release a bit so we have more time to prepare.

Iím happy to announce that we just enabled Media Viewer by default on nine more pilot sites: Czech, Estonian, Finnish, Hebrew, Polish, Romanian, Thai, Slovak, and Vietnamese Wikipedias. 

1. Overview
Weíre releasing Media Viewer gradually, a few wikis at a time, to test it carefully before deploying to the next batch of sites. So far, the tool has been well received on our first pilot sites: Catalan, Hungarian and Korean Wikipedias, as well as on English Wikivoyage, as outlined below. Next Thursday, we plan to deploy to some of our first large wikis: Dutch, French, Japanese, Spanish and Swedish Wikipedias. Learn more about this release plan here:

Interesting. As far as I know, there has been no announcement, nor feedback, on-wiki, at all to/from the Swedish community about this enhancement. Are they aware about this deployment? If not, who is (the unlucky one) assigned to handle the feedback from the community once this change goes live?
