As you might know, we deployed a new software version of Phabricator
about 48 hours ago (T86772) which changed a few things:

* URLs require an additional "/project" in the path. Examples:
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/sprint/view/935/ is now
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/sprint/board/1015/ is now
Please update potential links on-wiki.

* Links to Phab project pages now go to the workboard instead of the
project description page (cf. T89865). A new navigation bar for projects
can be seen on the left. If loading the workboard takes some time and
you just want the list of tasks, consider saving a custom query:
(You can share URLs of such queries among team members.)

* To make a project a sprint project, an "ยง" is not required anymore in
its name. Instead there is a "Is Sprint" checkbox when you edit the
details of a project. After setting it you MUST edit the project details
again and set both a start and end date (if you don't do that,
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/sprint/ will show an error)

* The Sprint Burndown Chart does not depend on Maniphest Task Status
anymore (as a task can be part of several projects)
** https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T88727

* The Sprint extension supports setting "Can Edit Task Status" and "Can
Assign Tasks" policies. This is currently NOT enabled but could be if
disruptive behavior is seen on tasks that are part of sprints.

* Docs on mw.org have been mostly updated though Christopher (CC'ed)
might add more improvements.

Hope I didn't forget anything important.
