resume merging translatable strings? next week? 2019?

Due to changes we are making in the way our translation systems process
data we will be temporarily disabling the auto deployment of newly
translated content until further notice. The goal of these changes will
be to improve the evaluation of content submitted to our translation
This means developers should not merge new translatable strings into
MediaWiki Core nor Wikimedia deployed extensions until we re-enable the

overwrite a string and thus prevent updates from new and improved
We apologize for any inconvenience this delay in service may cause and
will alert you as soon as this maintenance is completed.
