What I do not understand is why? We have had maps and nearby functionality
for a very long time 2014 based on Wikidata . It has the benefit of

offer. This was developed at the Hackathon in Vienna.
OSM maps have as a

Why are we not using OSM? I know Yuri created tiles within the WMF system
of services and those are what Wikivoyage uses. Wikivoyage was once using
no open maps that were not hosted locally which was a breach of our privacy

It is an "integral part of the interface", so mcu so, it is it's own "thing" in
the app, and not part of "in articles". See screenshot (which I can't upload to
I think it depends how it's being used. If the nonfree content is presented
as an integral part of the interface, such as inline with the article,
that's a problem. On the other hand, if the interface just allows the
separate Apple Maps to be pulled up, that's a bit different. We frequently
I'm not one who usually writes on these lists, but since it seems like a good
way to get others opinions (and ince I've already formed my own), I thought it
was a good way to see what others had to say and think.

Thanks Katherine. It's nice to see how this process is coming along. The
weekly updates are helpful.

It’s the 10th update! According to English Wikipedia, the traditional gift

Congratulations to everyone.
I notice that some of these users do not have their WMF accounts connected

Yes, the Foundation's Community Engagement department, who are the most
familiar with Wikimedia communities, reviewed the applications thoroughly.
If you have concerns about a specific person, which obviously can't be
