Hi, just pinging to ask how this is coming along. I see
. It looks like there is a
restricted task that might be blocking progress. Any idea when the issue(s)
will be resolved so that the URL shortener can go live?

Hi Legoktm and others,
I have a use case for which Wikimedia shortlinks that could be edited
(to adapt to the changing locations of intended targets) could be
useful. However, http://urlshortener.wmflabs.org/
comes with the
disclaimer "DO NOT USE THIS SITE FOR ANYTHING OTHER THAN TESTING. IT
WILL GO AWAY." Is there any chance of having a stable long-term URL
shortener in the next few months?
Yeah, don't use that site. I actually just deleted it, it's no longer
needed for testing. The actual w.wiki based URL shortener is going to
happen Real Soon Now™. It was supposed to be after Wikimania except a
few other bugs have popped up since then that are being worked on.
