As per this discussion

I don't see personas called out specifically as included or excluded from the feature. Will personas be included in the add-ons default to compatible work?
This question was also raised in bug 693901.
Personas are always compatible so there is no change to them

Requesting in-litmus? flag for virgil since he is the Qa owner for this feature

Cautiously but optimistically calling this "fixed". All the major parts are done, and it's just been enabled on Aurora. There are still some things to be done in followup releases, but IMO they're not required to call the feature "complete".
