This page serves to document and centralize some issues related to the conduct and evaluation of the trial. The trial will last for two months and then a community discussion will decide the future of the implementation, the default being deactivation.

We're currently tracking the list of items we intend to complete in Bugzilla. You can see the latest list in Bugzilla, and get more detailed information on the WMF development project page for Pending Changes.
Initial article count limits
We are initially applying the trial configuration of Flagged Protection to, at most, 2000 articles (though the precise figure could be adjusted as the trial proceeds). This is because:
- From de.PhysicsWiki.org and flaggedrevs.labs.wikimedia.org shows that Flagged Protection will impact performance. So the WMF developers would like to start small.
- The community can get used to this feature with a limited number of articles, instead of letting it loose on any page.
If performance takes a hit, the ops team may roll back Flagged Protection to fewer articles (mechanism TBD), rather than shutting off the feature altogether. If things are going well on both the performance and community norm fronts, the operations team may increase the limit during the trial. There are not currently plans for a limit after the trial period. However, there may need to be some mechanism in place to prevent drastic increases in the number of articles placed under Flagged Protection to safeguard site performance.
