Hm, but it is already deployed on MWW and Test wikis, isn't it? It was 
in recent's section in all the issues before so I don't quite understand 
need to change the location. But I'm not a great fun of any changes of 
things I'm used to at all :) Perhaps others should leave a comment about 
that piece.

Well if the changes you don't want to put in future's yet are really 
quite minor then I think it's OK for me. Thought I can't see how it'd 
harm to advance notify about them and then  announce the changes after 
deployment again either. Latter way could be useful for users who read 
tech news on tech forums and do it quite irregularly.

But any way there will be always topics with panic about what happened 
right next to the section with tech news which explains it :)
