The reason that feature is not moving towards deployment is because of
the issues that the other developers explained in their Bugzilla
comments.  Can you help by asking Robert Horlings & Gérard de Smaele to

We welcome the contributions of non-developers to the software
development process!  For example, you can:

* help test the software and file bug reports (example:
* help document the current state of engineering activity so everyone's
more aware of what's happening:
* join the wikitech-ambassadors list to help communicate between your
wiki communities and WMF about upcoming and desired changes:

And I see you're already on the Bug Squad to help monitor new incoming
bug reports and check whether old ones are still valid:
