With these steps completed, the feature is disabled by default, but can be

## Convert to a regular setting (optional)
Sometimes we decide a feature should always be user-controllable as a setting
even after it has been fully deployed. In that case, we would craft a new,
regular setting:
1. Remove the feature flag from
[settings](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-react-sdk/blob/develop/src/settings/Settings.js)
and add a regular setting with the appropriate levels for your feature
2. Replace the `isFeatureEnabled` lines with `getValue` or similar calls
according to the [settings
docs](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-react-sdk/blob/develop/docs/settings.md)
(checking carefully, as we may want a different mix of code paths when the
feature is always present but gated by a setting)
3. Remove the feature from the [labs documentation](https://github.com/vector-im/riot-web/blob/develop/docs/labs.md)
4. Remove feature state from
[develop](https://github.com/vector-im/riot-web/blob/develop/riot.im/develop/config.json)
