  • The explanation is as you'd expect... the team was testing the existing functionality of the "right rail request" during an extended upgrade. The "right rail request" is simply the call that places the content on the right rail (no new functionality or coming features were implied).

  • Are you going to add a feature, so you can choose if you want it right rail or left rail?
