I gave my review feedback.
I have no problem on the technical design of this PR.
I'll review this PR today.
Can we move this PR forward?
Yep, that's what I thought—just wanted to confirm since this affects documentation. Specifically, if it's not going to be visible on edx.org, the doc team won't be creating documentation for it (an unfortunate policy IMO but necessary given current constraints).
FYI, thinking ahead to the G release of Open edX, or should add this new feature to a wiki page so it'll be mentioned in the release notes.
It's hidden by default. Not sure who makes the decision to turn it on or not for edx.org.
