> - change the user interface preference, and create pages in the
> English test wiki in your language.
> This is due to our limited capacity to set up additional wikis. If you

> Wikimedia communities will also have to decide what kind of
> configuration to use for their project. Key questions to answer
> - What quality attributes should there be?
> - Who should be permitted to flag changes as having been reviewed for
> vandalism, or for other quality attributes?
> - Should the default view for unregistered users change to the "stable
> version" on all pages, some pages, or no pages?
> The German Wikimedia community has implemented a particular

> == What's next? ==
> The test will run at least until April 10, 2008 before the extension
> is implemented live on any wiki. This is to allow any serious problems
> to be surfaced by the community. If there are no critical open issues
> as of April 10, any language/project community will be permitted to
> file a request through https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/ to activate the
> extension. This request will have to point to pages in the project
> indicating a consensus to move forward. Detailed instructions to do so
> will be posted on the test wikis.
