Ok, so after this, and a couple of brief offlist discussions, we've
made a slight change to the plan:

Here's what we'll do:
1) Wednesday, October 31: Deploy to en.wikipedia.org first. There's
enough video content there, and robust enough feedback (WP:VPT) that
if there's any problem with video, we'll hear about it. Also, more
easiliy reversed than going to commons.
2) (TBD, possibly Monday, November 5) Deploy to everything *but* commons
3) (TBD, possibly Wednesday, November 7) Deploy to commons

I'll make the changes to all of the published plans to reflect this.

Another update. We're going to postpone this one day. There's some
further testing that needs to happen on older versions of IE, as well
as a fix for a blocker that needs to be deployed and spend some time
in test. New time: Thursday, November 1, 16:00 UTC to English
Wikipedia.
