My understanding is that the first item (in "recent changes") covers
wikis where the tool has already been enabled. The second item (in
"this week") is about what will be enabled next week, i.e. "this week"
when the newsletter is sent on Monday.

It's a bit confusing and I thought about merging them, but that would
have meant mixing wikis where the feature was already available, and
wikis where it will be added later, so I decided to keep them
separate. I'm open to suggestions about how to handle similar cases in
future newsletters.
