Re: [Wikimedia-l] Recognition of the MediaWiki Stakeholder's Group

2014-11-10 Thread Quim Gil
Great news! Finally a formal group focused in MediaWiki for third parties,
within the Wikimedia movement. Autonomous and connected. Now the sky is the
limit of the memebers of this group.  :)

PS: Stakeholder's or Stakeholders?

  Greetings,
 
  The Affiliations Committee is pleased to announce the recognition [1] of
  the MediaWiki Stakeholder's Group - a user group for MediaWiki
 developers,
  admins, users, consultants, and hosting providers who cooperate in order
 to
  improve the software and advocate the needs of MediaWiki users outside
 the
  Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) and its projects.
 
  This group shows great promise and potential for helping organize folks
 who
  are interested in making MediaWiki even better and give a voice to the
 many
  non-WMF users of the software.
 
  So, now we have them joining the family of affiliates. Please, let's give
  them a warm welcome!

[Wikimedia-l] Alex Roshuk / User:Alex756

I have learnt from Facebook that Alex Roshuk, old-time Wikimedian who
helped set up the Wikimedia Foundation back in the day (including
co-drafting the bylaws), has died.

I've memorialised his user page and user talk on enwiki.

[Wikimedia-l] VisualEditor monthly newsletter is now multilingual

2014-11-10 Thread Erica Litrenta
(Apologies for cross-posting.)

Hi all,
I'm glad to announce that the *monthly VisualEditor newsletter* was
recently marked for translation for the first time: we had received several
related community requests.

The issue for September and October [0] was delivered in 10 languages to
the editors who signed up in the past months (please join them! [1]) in
addition to a list of relevant pages which includes at a minimum all the
Wikipedias where VisualEditor is already the default editor [2]. Future
time windows for translations will be announced through the Translators
mailing list [3], or personally to volunteers who want to help with this
task; please contact me off-list to indicate your availability. *The
November issue is now open for translations and will be delivered in a few
days [4]. *

Special thanks to our awesome community of translators, to Guillaume for
assisting me in setting up the whole mechanism, to Whatamidoing (WMF) for
providing the contents and to James F. for reviewing them.

Best,
Elitre (WMF)

[Wikimedia-l] WMVE Annual General Meeting and Board Elections

2014-11-10 Thread Oscar Costero
Dear all,

This last weekend, Wikimedia Venezuela (WMVE) held its annual general
meeting at Caracas, Venezuela. During our meeting, the members held the
elections for seats in the Board, to be vacated by five (5) Board members
through a period of 3 years.

The results of the Board Seats election are:

*(Terms to begin on February 1, 2015)*
1. *Oscar Costero - President* *(reelected)*
2. *Tomás Guardia - Vicepresident*
3. *Ybsen Lucero - Treasurer **(reelected)*
4. *Kevin D Landaeta - **Secretary*
5. *Jenner Fuentes - **Spokesperson*

We are excited to have three new members in the Board, and we look forward
to working with them in the coming months. At the same time, we would like
to extend our thanks to our outgoing board members, *Carlos M Colina,
Samuel Cirilo *and* Fhaidel Dominguez*, for their service to the Board and
to Wikimedia Venezuela.

Cheers,

Congratulations, WMVE!

I look forward to hearing more about your plans, and to assist in any way I
can.

May I ask that some time be taken to keep [[m:Reports]] up-to-date with
WMVE activities[1]?  Note that the chapter agreement requires chapters to
send WMF an annual activity report and financial statement.

I am quite saddened to hear this news - in Wikipedia's early years and 
while the Wikimedia Foundation was being created, Alex was a 
tremendously important part of the community. In addition to helping 
draft the original bylaws and providing other legal advice, he deserves 
credit for his part in shaping our culture of high standards for dealing 
with copyrights, licensing obligations, and other legal issues. I'm glad 
that I was able to meet him in person at Wikimania in Boston, when he 
was still a somewhat active participant.

The Wiki Education Foundation just introduced its Assignment Wizard,
which is being developed with the help of an outside agency. As this

 PS: Stakeholder's or Stakeholders?
 
 
 Stakeholders or Stakeholders' would be correct.
 
 Stakeholder's implies there is one stakeholder only - presumably not the
 intention.
 
 The difference only matters to pedants with very good English, but worth
 getting right.
