I would guess that partnerships are not being terminated early, but 
merely being allowed to expire whenever they expire. As the end date 
will depend on the agreement that formed the partnership, I expect there 
is not a single universal date on which Wikipedia Zero ends.

[Wikimedia-l] Safe harbour mooted in Australia for internet intermediaries

2018-06-30 Thread Anthony Cole
On 13th June, the High Court of Australia allowed a defamation case against
Google to proceed.  Presently, Australia has no "safe harbour" provision
for internet intermediaries, though there is some protection for telcos.
[1]

The previous week, on 7th June, the New South Wales state government
released a review of its 2005 defamation act, and the review recommends
that the states re-convene their defamation working party and ask it, inter
alia, if a specific safe harbour provision would be beneficial. [2][3]

WMF legal might want to consider making a submission to the working party
(once it has re-convened) to put our case, and might want to watch the law
reform process as it unfolds to ensure any safe harbour language that may
be adopted is broad enough to include Wikimedia projects.

Hi! This link is very helpful! Thanks.

I was also looking for information on the expiration date for partnerships,
which is when the users will notice the access issues. Not sure if there is
any.

[Wikimedia-l] Status of Wikipedia Zero

2018-06-30 Thread Lucas Teles
Hello.

On Portuguese Wikipedia Facebook page, I am receiving lots of messages
asking if Wikipedia Zero is over. One of them stated that they were told by
the internet service provider that WMF has cancelled the program.

Do we have any official statement about it? I learnt that WZ would end this
year, but I am looking for any accurate information in order to reply to
the messages. Is it over for all the providers and countries? Is there
something se should tell to the affected users?

Thanks!

> WMF APs consistently fail to meet my expectations

Pine do you have a list of specific flaws somewhere? You have good
advice, but I've lost track of much of it.

Did you participate in the AP talk page discussions? Did you try
editing it to meet your standards?

Best regards,
Jim
