as usual, I get surprised every time there are major changes on the MediaWiki software that are deployed without providing advance warning to the community.
Every time it's the same story: something stops working on the project. A gadget, a toolbar or some personalised JS.
I am not saying that MediaWiki software shouldn't be improved: it's normal that we're trying to get all we can from this outdated software. I am just asking that major changes that affect all the Wikisources should be announced in every single Village Pump waaay before deploying them on the projects.
Is it possible, as a Usergroup, to do a little pressure to be considered as a community and not as guinea pigs on which to deploy new, partially-tested features?
