Subject: [Wikitech-l] HTML5, it's a coming (again)!
It's been a long time coming (for the nth time..), but we're scheduling a
deployment of HTML5 across the Wikimedia cluster . This is set for Monday
17th September at 18:00-20:00 UTC .
The intention is to set $wgHtml5  to true everywhere. It's been running
and our 2 test wikis for quite a while, and other sites
with no issues.
The intention is to leave it enabled unless it causes major problems. If
you're running an application that screen scrapes, shame on you; you've had
enough notice to get it fixed! ;)
Now is the time to fix up your scripts and programs (where necessary), tell
Wikitech-l mailing list
