There won't be anything to test until the rewrite is done since it's still
undergoing major changes. There's no point in deploying code and testing for
it if that code will change drastically in a few months.

Village Pump, we need it as soon
When will it be enable? Or, need to wait for central action?
Thank you for the link.
This page says in the end: "Production deployment of LiquidThreads
with its improved backend to all Wikimedia wikis using LiquidThreads.
Timeline: Before Wikimania, August 2."
Putting Wikimania as a target date is very nice, because Wikimania and
the hackathon that preceeds it will happen in a country that speaks
Hebrew and Arabic - right-to-left languages. If the new LQT will be
deployed before Wikimania only to wikis that use LQT now, this means
that until Wikimania, LQT will not be tested by right-to-left language
users on right-to-left language wikis.
And so this will become a missed opportunity. If a development version
of LQT will be tested on an RTL wiki before Wikimania, the RTL bugs
will be already known before the beginning of the hackathon and would
be easily fixed during it with the help of Israeli developers that
will be present in Haifa. If it won't be tested before Wikimania,
fixing these RTL bugs will be much, much harder.
And so i repeat my request: Please install LQT on the Hebrew Wikinews
and on other wikis whose users offer their help in testing.
