If it is from UNESCO does that mean it is under a Wikimedia compatible
license? One could put it on Wikisource :-)

Hoi,
I found a complete history of Africa that is available in PDF format from
UNESCO.. It is in eight parts and I am happy that it exists.. I added the
data in Wikidata but this is the link for the English version.. There are
versions in other languages as well :)
Thanks,
 GerardM

[Wikimedia-l] All mails going to Spam for Live users?

2017-07-01 Thread Rehman Abubakr
Hi,


All emails from Wikimedia-l started to automatically drop into my Spam folder 
as of a few days ago. I use an "@live.com" email address (from Microsoft 
Outlook).


Anyone else facing this?



Thanks and regards,

[Wikimedia-l] New bureau for the Board of Wikimédia France

2017-07-01 Thread Édouard Hue
Dear Wikimedians,

This e-mail to let you know of some changes in the Board of trustees of
Wikimédia France.

Our Chair, Émeric Vallespi, got elected as deputy Member of Parliament
during the French legislative elections in June. Although this position
does not entail an active role in Parliament,  Émeric has accepted a
full-time position on his MP’s staff. Therefore, in accordance with
conflict of interests policy at WMFr and in view of his new job, Émeric
resigned from the chair position. He remains a member of the Board but his
role in our lobbying activities will be restricted regarding his position
in politics.

New officers have been elected and our Board is now composed as following:

   - Samuel Le Goff - Chair ;
   - Marie-Alice Mathis - Vice-Chair ;
   - Édouard Hue - Secretary ;
   - Guillaume Goursat - Treasurer ;
   - Louise Merzeau ;
   - Florian Pépellin ;
   - Florence Raymond ;
   - Émeric Vallespi.

On behalf of Wikimédia France Board of Trustees,
With our best regards,
--
Édouard Hue
Secretary of Wikimédia France
