I think that the choice of Meta-Wiki for fosting cross-wiki personal CSS
and javascript is not a good choice. All wikis are already linked to
Commons that scales far better for all users, rather than Meta-Wiki which
is still small and not made for hosting these personal contents for
millions users

In addition there are far lot more admns and people helping on Commons than
on Meta-Wiki, and there are also some good translations in this
multilingual site.

(but maybe developers think that the exploding growth of Commons causes
some long term risks for users as Commons has now difficulties to find
backuping mirrors due to its volume)

Now we can expect many more users visiting Meta-Wiki and helping to develop
its content (notably pages about policies, chapters, groups; strategic
development; grants...)
