How open minded ...

That said can people participating to this thread respect the soft limit of
this mailing list, i.e. this is not a chat, and I'm pretty sure your
answers can wait 24 hours.

Thank you.

Her POV ?

Well I can confirm what Caroline said.

What more do you want ? To verify all other reports ?

It's sad that things have escalated this far, but may be it's time to
wonder why it escalated like that. There was multiple incidents reported.
Things that should have stayed private were told on this mailing list by
Romaine... well when do we stop this ?

Please keep in mind when you cast your support here that people who have
reported Romaine might be reading this.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Wikidata now officially has more total edits than English language Wikipedia

2019-03-20 Thread Pierre-Selim
Well I guess it's great to see the popularity of Wikidata. That said
comparing edit counts has never been really meaningful and we all know it.

So great milestone, does it mean anything more than there is a lot of work
going on, I don't know.

That said Kudos to all people involved in Wikidata.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Diversity Award for the mentoring program of the 2017 Wikimedia Hackathon in Vienna

2017-09-28 Thread Pierre-Selim
Kudos to the whole hackathon team!

Le 28 sept. 2017 15:39, "Claudia Garád"  a
écrit :

Hello everyone!

We wanted to share some good news with you: Our international team around
the Wikimedia Hackathon mentoring program won the first Austrian Open
Source Award in the category "Diversity" [1].

The Austrian Open Source Award was established this year in order to raise
awareness and visibility for our local Open Source Communities and their
projects. The jury consisted of representatives from across the various
Open Communities in Austria (Open Knowledge, Linux, and Drupal among
others) and honoured outstanding projects in the categories Open Data, Open
Software, Open Hardware, and Diversity.

The Jury particularly mentioned our comprehensive documentation under a
free license which enables other event organizers to apply our ideas and
concepts and to build on them [2] [3].
We are very happy about this positive signal for inclusive events, which
make it easier for all newcomers to join our great communities and we hope
it encourages even more people to also make our other Wikimedia events more
and more newcomer friendly. A special thanks goes to our awesome mentors
who were the heart and soul of the mentoring program and the Hackathon!

For more information about what we learned around the mentoring program you
can also check out our post from the Wikimedia Blog [4].

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia content for in-flight entertainment?

2017-07-30 Thread Pierre-Selim
Certification process for the hardware of kiwix might be a tremendous pain
in the ass.

And second point the airline will need a business case to cary more weight
(count about 3.5% of the weight as extra fuel burn per hour).

That said I'd love to use Wikipedia on an IFE.

[Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia France AGM 2016: new board

2016-11-01 Thread Pierre-Selim Huard
Dear movement fellows,

Wikimedia France held its Annual General Meeting on October 29th, 2016.
During this AGM, we elected 6 board members, of which 3 are new (and shiny).

Sébastien Beyou was not running for a new term and the board is grateful
for his service as deputy treasurer. Of course, he will remain an active
member of the chapter.

Marie-Alice Mathis, 31, is finishing a double PhD in neuroscience from the
Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam and Université Claude-Bernard in Lyon.
Leaving the hectic world of academic research, she now has a slightly less
hectic job in a hospital near Paris and is planning to become an EMT. She
brings her newly found free time and experience of the academic world to
the board of Wikimedia France in the hope of fostering contributions from
researchers, with a focus on Open Access and the defense of the Commons.

Caroline Becker, 29, is a software engineer living in Toulouse. Some of you
might know her through her involvement in the Project Grant Committee.
She's an active member of Wikimedia France since 2011, working with GLAM
partners, organizing conferences and workshops, and working on the quality
process. She's also a sysop on French Wikipedia and Commons, and writes
bots for Wikidata.

Manuel Fauveau, 64, is a French retired civil engineer. A Wikipedian since
2008, and a member of our chapter since fall 2013, he focuses on helping
newcomers discover the projects and start with the encyclopedia. On summer
2015, he joined (as secretary) the board of Vikidia, the non profit running
the Encyclopedia for kids 8-13. Aiming to go one step further with the
movement, he joins the board to help improving communication between all
the stakeholders.

The day after this AGM, the Board of trustees held its first meeting and
elected its officers.

Our board is now structured as follow:
* Émeric Vallespi, chair

* Samuel Le Goff, vice chair (reelected)

* Guillaume Goursat, treasurer

* Édouard Hue, secretary

* Caroline Becker, (elected)

* Jean-Frédéric Berthelot, (reelected)

* Manuel Fauveau. (elected)

* Pierre-Selim Huard, (reelected)

* Marie-Alice Mathis, (elected)

* Florian Pépellin

Please welcome our newcomers and join us in expressing your gratitude to
Sébastien our former board member!

Sincerely,

Pierre-Selim

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Open and recorded WMF Board meetings

2016-03-07 Thread Pierre-Selim
Seriously ?

If the board decide to keep the CEO/ED, the board cannot go and undermine
the authority of the CEO by communicating doubts.

The mistake was not to say unanimous support but the "keep the ED" straw
poll result. It really surprised me because the more you wait the more it
costs (talents leave, delayed arrival of a new CEO, ...), and honnestly
there is no recovery possible at 90% of disapproval from your staff
(C-levels included).

Just a question, do you think transparency is about having those kind of

public minutes ? The comment you made worries me a lot.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] I am going to San Francisco

2016-02-26 Thread Pierre-Selim
Ruslan it's different. Way different I would say, being
head of staff is the role of the ED (when not steping down).

A board member messing with that is doing something bad
for the organization. If a board member is not happy with
the result of the ED, his option is simple, talk about it with
the board and act within the board.

Now, When an ED is stepping down, the board has to step up
during the transition.

Finding the limit of your mandate as board member is not easy
this is why lots of organizations write Board codex, board guidance
book, etc.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] 2015 Harassment Survey - Results Report

2016-01-30 Thread Pierre-Selim
As an oversighter on Wikimedia Commons, I have witness what has been
described by Maggie and Philippe.

We should take such reports seriously, instead of trying to invalidate the
result. The denial is hindering improvements.

Back on the topic, thanks for this Email Asaf.
It made me remember a very good workshop we had in Berlin at the #wmcon
last year about not being ashame of our failure, and try to learn from it.

[Wikimedia-l] New Wikimedia France board

2015-11-06 Thread Pierre-Selim Huard
Dear movement fellows,

Wikimedia France held its Annual General Meeting on October 24th, 2015.
During this AGM, we elected 4 board members, of which 1 is new.

Alexis Marise Bique, Ludovic Péron, Benoît Evellin and Léa Lacroix were not
running for a new term.  Wikimedia France board is grateful for their
service.

Emeric Vallespi, Guillaume Goursat were running again and were
reelected. Florian
Pépellin who was appointed in May and was this time candidate for a full
term. As a reminder:

* Émeric Vallespi is 28, a banker living in Montpellier. He served on the
board for three years. He is especially interested in governance issues,
internal control and strategy topics.
* Guillaume Goursat is 30, and is based in Dakar (Senegal) where he works
as an economist in water and sanitation. He served as a treasurer since May
2012 and is interested in internal control and projects in Africa − he
organized Wiki Loves Monuments in Cameroon back in 2013.
* Florian Pépellin is 26, living in Chambéry. An editor since 2005 and
chapter member since 2011, his regular attendance over the years to
Wikimedian meetups all over France has earned him the nickname of « Floflo
of all cabals ». He has just finished his studies in accounting and
research in economy/management. His professional background and his
interest for strategy work prompted us to appoint him to the board 6 months
ago, and he is now elected for a full term.

Now, we would like to welcome a new board member:

* Édouard Hue, 32, is a software architect living in Rennes. He has been an
editor for six years and joined Wikimedia France after meeting chapter
members at Wikipedia's ten years celebrations. He helped his local cabal
grow with the estabilshment of their first partnership with the local
university. After participating in two editions of Wiki Loves Monuments, he
was a juror in two more editions and eventually set up the first edition of
Wiki Loves Earth in France this year with his fellow chapter members. He
also built a Wikimedia Commons software client that Wikimedia France is
looking upon to enable its GLAM partners to upload their content by
themselves. Being more and more involved in Wikimedia France's internal
affairs, Édouard decided to apply as a board member with a focus on local
development and members empowerment.

Our board is now structured as follow:
* Christophe Henner, Chair
* Émeric Vallespi, Vice chair
* Guillaume Goursat, Treasurer
* Sébastien Beyou, Deputy treasurer
* Pierre-Selim Huard, Secretary
* Jean-Frédéric Berthelot, Deputy secretary
* Édouard Hue,
* Samuel Le Goff,
* Florian Pépellin
* Benoît Prieur,

Please welcome the newcomer and do not hesitate to join us in expressing
your gratitude to our former board members!

Sincerely,
Pierre-Selim

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Media handling is difficult

2015-07-31 Thread Pierre-Selim
2015-07-31 19:54 GMT+02:00 Andrew Lih andrew@gmail.com:

 FYI, for those interested in uploading to Commons, there was an interesting
 presentation at Wikimania about usability testing this.

 https://archive.org/details/videoeditserver-96

 The short answer to your very valid question -- licenses and copyright are
 complicated legal issues when it comes to media. That creeps over into
 usability in ways that are probably going to be very hard to solve.


I guess it adds complexity for sure, however it doesn't explains why we
still can't do
a proper image rotation or crop without hacking around JS or bots (which
makes things
complicated when the volunteer maintainer has enough of fixing is code due
to change
mediawiki).

  Hi,
 
  I would like to ask, if the ease of media handling (images, photographs
 on
  Wikimedia Commons) is a priority for Wikimedia Foundation? If not, could
 it
  be a priority? Recently we have seen a big step done for editors =
  VisualEditor. Contributors have no longer study wikicode to be able to
  contribute. That removes one of the technological barriers and it looks
 its
  a priority for WMF.
 
  While part of contributing to Wikipedia is still contributing by images.
 I
  am from Wikimedia Czech republic. We run many projects based on media
  harvest or organizing *low barrier media harvest activities* to bring new
  users to Wikipedia.
 
 
  As our newbies are not technologically skilled and not native English
  speakers, there is a big technology block to contribute to Wikipedia with
  ease:
 
  1) there is no app for mobile phones and tablets for image upload
 
  2) newbies are lost, when they click on Upload image and they are
  transferred from Wikipedia to Wikimedia Commons
 
  3) Wikimedia Commons is in English - foreign language for our
 participants
 
  4) biggest language barrier are categories, which are in English only, we
  need to insert name of the category in our mother tongue
 
  5) Wikimedia Commons environment is still pretty techy
 
  6) Insert metadata, takes a long time:
 
  e.g.: you have an image of a cathedral in Des Moines, IW. 3 or 4 times
 you
  have to insert same information: a) to file name (*Des Moines,
  cathedral.jpg*), b) to file description (*en:** Cathedral in Des Moines,
  Iowa, USA*/*es:* *La catedral de XY en Des Moines, Iowa, EEUU*) and c) to
  the category (*category:Des Moines* or *Churches in Des Moines*,
  *category:Cathedrals
  in Iowa*).
 
  Its 2015, there are many social projects around us. You can handle images
  much easier on these projects than on mother of all social projects -
  Wikipedia. Big step was done with using images allready present in
 Commons.
  Could we do something for those, who contributes with their media to
  Wikipedia? Could we do it in one or two years?
 
  Thank you very much for your concern!
 
  Regards,
 
  Juandev

Hello everyone,
   
After three great years working at the foundation, the time has come
 to
say goodbye.
   
I will be leaving WMF at the end of June, to spend more time with my
family, focus on personal art projects and consult part-time on
 worthy
causes.
   
I would like to thank all the community and team members I have had
 the
pleasure to work with over the years. It has been an honor to serve
 our
movement together — and to help our contributors share free knowledge
   with
each other and the world.
   
I’m particularly grateful to Katherine Maher and our WMF
 communications
team for being such wonderful collaborators. I really enjoyed working
   with
them to manage and edit the Wikimedia blog, help grow our team and
   publish
some great stories together, to celebrate the heroes of our movement.
   
Going forward, WMF's Juliet Barbara will manage the Wikimedia blog,
 in
close collaboration with Ed Erhart. As many of you know, Ed is the
  former
editor-in-chief of the Wikipedia Signpost and has now joined our team
  for
the summer. I've worked with him for nearly a month now and find him
uniquely qualified for this project. Starting today, please contact
  them
directly with any questions about the blog (they are Cc:d on this

After June 30, you can reach me at fabriceflo...@gmail.com

me on Twitter ( @fabriceflorin ) or on my blog (

The last three years have been an incredible experience for me, and I
  am
grateful for all that I have learned from so many of you. You’ve been
  an
inspiration to me and I have many fond memories of our time
 together. I
wish you all the best with the next chapter of the Wikimedia movement

[Wikimedia-l] Not all pixels are created equals: introducing brand new Wikimedia France's metrics

2015-04-01 Thread Pierre-Selim
Dear movement fellows,

Impact is crucial for our movement, and although metrics will always be
imperfect, we must strive to reinvent ourselves and always come up with new
innovative ways of  measuring what we bring to the Wikimedia projects, to
free knowledge, and to human society.

Measuring impact regarding collections of media holds its own challenges
and although we have been focusing on this for a while now, much work still
lies ahead.

We were inspired by the “bytes added” metric, one of the pinnacles of
written content expansion measurement, which goes beyond mere edit count.
The same reasoning holds true for media:a puny upload count cannot come
close to the real awesomeness.

This is why, as we appreciate that size matters, Wikimedia France quality
commitee is proud to introduce its brand new set of metrics: the pixel
count and the quality pixel count − since quality is of firstmost
importance.

You may query the Pixel count metric for your FDC reports as part of our
wm-metrics webapp [1]

Furthermore, an implementation of these new metrics will also ship with our
new new (teasing!) product [2]

As of April 1st 2015 Wikimedia France has supported the upload on Wikimedia
Commons of:

   - 1 229 694 933 639 pixels [3]


   - among those pixels, 22 407 932 851 are quality pixels (18,223512%) [4]


This is only the beginning: next step is the measurement of cute pixels,
encyclopedic pixels and amazing pixels.

Confident in the relevance of these new indicators, we would be delighted
and honored to see the Pixel count integrated in the Global Metrics.

As always we welcome feedback, hugs and pull requests.

Sincerely,
For the quality committee of Wikimedia France
Caroline, Jean-Fred, Pierre-Selim and Petit Tigre

 That metric is all wrong, because it presumes that all pixels are
 equally valuable.  Surely, you should be also assigning weights to
 pixels depending on how much information they carry - background pixels
 out of the FOV aren't worth as much!

 Also, some historic pixels may be worth several newer ones.  Pixel
 valuation is an art as much as it is a science.


Thank you for your valuable input, we will think about it for next
iterations.

Good news everyone,
   
Cheese articles are gonna get improved!
   
As french, it was dreadful for us to see so few illustrations of
 cheese
   on
Wikipedia. This is about to change.
   
A group of french Wikimedians, lead by Pierre-Yves Beaudouin,
 designed
  a
project to photograph many cheeses, up to 200 for the moment.
   
This project is perticular as we aim to have it found through a
 french
crowdfunding platform, KissKissBankBank.
   
Of course Wikimedia France could have funded it itself, but we
 wanted
  to
use the project as a way to get the larger audience aware of their
   ability
to contribute and to give a fun image of contributing.
   
The project in few words iss follow :
* 10 cheeses per session
* During the session the cheeses are photographed and their articles
improved
* During the sessions experimented wikimedian would train new
 editors
* At every session every participant would enjoy eating good cheese
 too
   
If you want to read more, or even contribute, about the project you
 can
   go
on KissKissBankBank :
http://www.kisskissbankbank.com/fr/projects/wikicheese
   
   
If you have any questions, please feel free to shoot them on or off
  list.
   
All the best,

Hey everyone :)

I forgot to send this to wikimedia-l this morning as well...
I'm incredibly happy to share the news with you that Wikidata has won
the Open Data Award of the Open Data Institute in the category
publisher. The world is starting to notice that we have something big
with Wikidata.

I am delighted that they especially recognized the breath of topics
Wikidata covers and that it has been developed in the open since the
beginning. This award is for everyone in this community. We should be
proud! This is a perfect start into year 3 of Wikidata :)

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Insights of the Chapters Dialogue are online!

2014-08-09 Thread Pierre-Selim
 to the
  movement causes severe insecurities and is fuelling conflicts and
  misperceptions.
 
  Money-driven decisions: Creating a consensus about money, its
  collection and responsible dissemination (donors’ trust!) is scarcely
  possible. The Haifa trauma persistently blights the relationship
  between WMF and the Chapters, fuelled by additional disagreement about
  the new fundraising and grantmaking processes.
 
  The gap in leadership: Who should take the leadership role and what
  should leadership in the Wikimedia movement look like? Adopting the
  narrowed focus, the WMF clearly states that it does not see the
  development of movement entities as their duty. Chapters on the other
  hand expect the WMF to take a leading role in Chapters’ development,
  while the WMF expects Chapters to be more proactive.
 
  None of these conflicts can be viewed in isolation, and no solution
  can be developed without a thorough understanding and frank
  conversations about the causes in the first place. We therefore
  consider that it would be highly irresponsible to suggest solutions to
  any of the described issues. Instead, we have distilled tough
  questions from the insights that need to be addressed urgently and
  answered in an open and comprehensive manner:
 
  1. What do we as a movement want to achieve? Do we run a website or
  foster free knowledge? Why are we doing the things we do, and what
  for?
  2. How do we define impact when exploring new territory? And how do we
  measure success?
  3. What is the role of the Wikimedia Foundation?
  4. How do we want to communicate with each other? How can we build the
  necessary empathy and learn from each other? How can we overcome the
  old narrative and perceptions?
  5. Where does the money come from and where should it go? Should money
  be the limiting factor when striving for Free Knowledge?
  6. What movement framework is best suited to fulfil the Wikimedia
 mission?
 
  The way things are at present inhibits the movement from striving
  effectively for Free Knowledge. Instead of using its full potential to
  further its mission, it revolves around itself. The common mission is
  at serious risk if the movement does not tackle the causes of its
  problems.
 
  These tough questions can only be approached in a structured and
  professional way, with dedication and commitment. There is no point in
  tinkering with the symptoms and finding single-problem solutions.
 
  The Chapters Dialogue concludes with the recommendation to build upon
  the insights and to initiate a sequel: the design of a framework for
  the Wikimedia movement in which it can work strongly and effectively
  towards its mission in a professional way, yet stay true to its
  grassroots and maintain its diversity.

  Can it be in plain English please, rather than weird jargon?
 
  Examples include:
 
  * Gender diversity for the board as a whole - this might mean
  counting how many women are on the board (so why not say that?), or
  maybe it includes other dimensions, like a count of LGBT identifying
  people. The board as a whole might mean that the count is of people
  who are not actually board members, it is very unclear.
 
  * Geographic diversity for the board as a whole - this might mean
  counting the number of countries where board members reside, or how
  many different countries they have resided in, or how much they
  travel, or several other things. It may or may not be a part of
  Ethnic / multi-lingual diversity for the board as a whole which is
  counted as a second thingy.
 
  * Visionary creative drive - this appears to be classic management
  speak rather than English. I hope that the board has very few
  visionaries, it sounds like having several might become disruptive.
  Boards benefit from having several people who are not creative (that
  can be a good thing when you want basic stuff actually done, like
  giving some oversight for the annual accounts).

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Wikidata // was The tragedy of Commons

2014-06-18 16:58 GMT+02:00 Magnus Manske magnusman...@googlemail.com:

 The issue here seems to be political/community rather than technology. I
 could probably set up a MediaWiki installation with WikiBase plugin on Tool
 Labs within a day or so, then have a bot create/synchronize an item for
 each file on Commons. Community could start to create properties, and bots
 could fill in basic statements.

 That said, I'm not doing that. First, no time. Second, ire of the WMF for
 making them scramble to re-create my stuff yet again ;-)


And if we say please ?

   At the current time, I have yet to see how the Wikidata theoretical
   use improves finding images on Commons today. After regularly getting
   emails over the past two years raising expectations of how these
   problems will be solved through Wikidata, I have yet to be involved or
   invited to join any Commons based Wikidata project, despite being
   currently the most active unpaid volunteer uploader for Commons.
  
 
  There is;
  https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Wikidata
  https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Wikidata_for_media_info
  https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Wikimedia_Commons
 
  I formally invite you to take a look and join the discussions if you feel
  like :-)
 
 
  
   One of my particular interests was sorting out the Geograph project
   where I added meaningful place categories to images (around a million
   images). Last year I deliberately deferred continuing improvements and
   new uploads based on suggestions of how Wikidata was going to
   revolutionise the way this worked. As far as I am aware, there is
   still no published plan to help with identifying Commons categories
   with places using Wikidata; indeed for projects like our Avionics
   batch uploads (which rely on Airport categories and their locations) I
   have been told the opposite, to no longer expect, nor wait, for this
   to be sorted out and I am likely to revise my Geograph work without
   any plans to incorporate Wikidata, or work with Wikidata.
  
  
  You would need a lua template to do a bit of triangulation:
  1. From the linked Commons category to the Wikidata item you fetch the
  statements
  2. One of those statements should be category's main topic (P301)
  3. From the linked item, you can extract the location data
 
  This should be possible once this bug is implemented
  https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=47930
 
  I don't much about the Geograph project, but perhaps your work might be
  compatible with a future deployment of wikidata for media info?

Re: [Wikimedia-l] COM:IDENT?

2014-05-20 Thread Pierre-Selim
Hi all,

As an oversight, I'd like to give an advice first. When encountering a
privacy matter that you believe falls under the oversight policy 
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Oversight_policy#Use you should probably
contact directly oversight-comm...@lists.wikimedia.org rather than linking
the information on a public forum (or even on a talk page), i.e. if there
is a real breach of privacy more people will see it :(.

That said, I fail to see what falls under the oversight policy as explained
by Odder on his talk page. The only use case that come to mind is the first
one *Removal of non-public personal information*, however by publishing the
information the couple seems to agree, for now, to have this information
published (as far as we know, they are not lying about their identity). I'd
gladly suppress the personnal information if it is requested by the person
concerned or if it was an obvious mistake.

As an administrator, it remains, [[COM:IDENT]] which is a guildeline on how
to proceed with photography of identifiable person, however I don't see any
photo in this discussion.

In the end I just think we are having this thread because of the topic
being related to nudity (which is clearly a not consensual topic in our
communities, probably because it is cultural) and not really because of any
real breach of privacy. If I'm getting it wrong, I'm open to discussion.


2014-05-20 20:04 GMT+02:00 Pipo Le Clown plecl...@gmail.com:

 (...)
 Now, I'm not really at ease with Odder's decision, and I think we (as a
 community) need to discuss that, in a civilized manner. This could have
 (and will, I hope ) happened on the pages meant for that, on Commons,
 without any unnecessary drama.


@ Pipo Le Clown  Feel free to send an email to the oversight mailing list
or start a discussion on Wikimedia Commons in order to explain your
opinion. I believe the oversight team is open to community input.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Open letter from Wikimedia Argentina regarding URAA

  Dear Geni, the 20 years indeed come from article 24 of law 11 723. The 25
  years come from the Berne Convention.


 But that merely established a minimum under international law. Unless you
 have some case law that says otherwise I'd suggest that article 6 applies
 to unpublished photographs which results in an effective term of life+10
 for unpublished photographs (although life+30 could be gained through
 careful timing of publication).



  In any case, Argentine copyright law
  is already known and documented in Commons, and we have been using a
  specific template (PD-AR-Photo) for years.


 See the last section of the template talk page which covers some of the
 issues the template has with US law. I'm afraid years of use doesn't mean
 that it has been reviewed by common's more serious copyright nerds.

[Wikimedia-l] Open letter on open letters (Was: Open letter from Wikimedia Argentina regarding URAA)

2014-02-26 Thread Pierre-Selim
I'm sorry but I find it pretty inappropriate that a chapter published such
strong words about volunteers of a Wikimedia Project *certain legal
fetishism whose reason gets lost in processes and misses the outcome.*

I'm speaking on my behalf, however as a former board member of a Wikimedia
Chapter I would never ever publish such a text, it's uncalled for and
inappropriate to judge so strongly volunteers who dededicate their time for
our common mission Free educational knowledge http://www.wikimedia.org/.

As a Wikimedia Commons volunteer I'm disappointed by the process followed
by some chapters, i.e. which have chosen to bypass the community and send a
letter directly to the board of trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation.
However, I must say I would have prefered the chapters to talk with the
principal stakeholders, i.e. all the communities. I know, said chapters are
not forced to talk with the communities but It is rather ironical, when
ignoring the stakeholder is a blame that I have heard a lot this month :p I
believe the community as a whole is capable of complex discussion and
decision as proven by the *Trademark policy consultation*, or the *reclaim
community logo discussions*.

The thing that sadden the most is that I believe discussion on the URAA
application is important movement wide (and also for the spread of free
knowledge), however this discussion doesn't start on a good process and
some letters were not mellow.

I know people might not share my point of view on how we should work
together as a movement, however I wanted to state it. That being said, it
doesn't change all the good work done by WMIL, WMES, WMAR, and I'll be
happy to talk with anyone of you guys around a drink the next time we can
meet to share our vision of the movement.

*Disclaimer:* I'm writting on my own capacity, my opinion as an
administrator (and oversighter) on Commons is that I'm pretty neutral on
the URAA matter, what I want and need is a community consensus to apply
when I'm using the tools the Community gave me.

Sincerely,
Pierre-Selim

2014-02-24 21:51 GMT+01:00 Galileo Vidoni gali...@gmail.com:

 Dear movement fellows,

 Wikimedia Argentina would like to express its support for the letter by
 Wikimedia Israel regarding URAA-motivated massive content deletions in
 Wikimedia Commons. Yet, we would like to express our view not only to the
 Foundation BoT but also to all Wikimedia editors, and especially to those
 working in Wikimedia Commons.

 Volunteers from Argentina have been among the most affected by the policy
 adopted by Wikimedia Commons administrators regarding images that could
 fall under URAA copyright provisions. Argentine copyright law provides that
 images enter the public domain only 25 years after their production and
 20 after their first documented publication. This relatively generous
 criterion has enabled unaffiliated volunteers and we as Wikimedia Argentina
 to enrich Commons with hundreds of thousands of historical images that are
 absolutely free under Argentine law: images of the political and every day
 life of the country, of its culture, of its popular idols, of its joyful
 and dark days, of its customs and architecture.

 However, over the last months certain Wikimedia Commons administrators have
 conducted massive deletions of these contents, in many cases involving
 entire categories. The burden of proof has been inverted: instead of having
 to justify the deletion of a certain file, things go that volunteers have
 to devout their time trying to justify the validity of their efforts. This
 has caused great damage, not only by way of our readers loosing access to
 free educational contents, but also de-motivating many editors and
 volunteers by making them feel that their efforts are ultimately vain and
 that our goal of free knowledge for everyone is being replaced by a certain
 legal fetishism whose reason gets lost in processes and misses the outcome.

 We acknowledge that the Wikimedia Foundation BoT and its Legal team have
 repeatedly stated, as has been reinforced in recent communications, that
 images shouldn't be deleted unless we receive a takedown notice, and that
 it has not received a single URAA-motivated notice to date. Certain
 Wikimedia Commons administrators have dismissed the Foundation's statement
 as a mere opinion vis-à-vis the SCOTUS ruling. Yet, it is an opinion by the
 organization that is legally responsible for the contents being hosted in
 Wikimedia Commons.

 We respectfully call the Wikimedia Commons community to reflect on the
 practical consequences of its current policy on URAA's implementation.
 Those files generating potential conflict could be even identified as such
 without the need for a pre-emptive deletion. And we would like the Commons
 community to reflect not only on the preventive loss of free contents we
 are generating, but also on the harmful disconnection between Wikimedia
 Commons and all of the other Wikimedia projects it serves

 The reason why is outlined in Ryan's blog post as well as his previous

 The short answer is the current state is known to present a number of
 privacy and security vulnerabilities further emphasized by the now-known
 existence of software designed to deliberaty target these vulnerabilities
 in Wikipedia specifically.

 https://blog.wikimedia.org/2013/08/01/future-https-wikimedia-projects/


I just think the user should be informed of this and should have the choice
(so the user can make an enlightened choice). And that is mostly my point.
All the explanation you have given are good, and the work of the WMF is
good IMO..


  Thank you for all the time you spent on this feature, however I'm not
  convinced at all.

 Luckily, the standard for the Movement is consensus, not catering to every
 extremist view with 100% buy-in. The latter standard is impossible as
 people would be affected either way. The technical component is informing
 the decision and helps to hash out some of the details, but this is a case
 where parts of the Vision are being compromised today, and a different
 (hopefully better) compromise is being reached through this rollout.


Off course, I was just giving my opinion, I'm one user and do not represent
more than that. We will see how it works out, and I would be happy to owe
you a drink if everything goes smooth.


 Take care,

 terry

  Continuation of this thread from wikitech-l:
 
 http://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2013-August/thread.html#71285
 
 
  tl;dr summary:
  * ops plans to switch logins to HTTPS
  * switching all logins to HTTPS is known to break access for logged-in
  users in countries where Wikimedia's HTTPS servers are blocked by
  government censorship
  * there are some plans to mitigate this by excluding some languages
 from
  the requirement
  * this is controversial for several reasons, one of which is that it
 will
  break access for users in those countries on language projects that are
  not
  excepted (eg English Wikipedia in mainland China)
  The last point isn't accurate. The original plan was to exempt certain
  languages from the login redirection, and those projects would be home
  wikis. When someone logged-in there, they'd also be logged-in everywhere
  else via central auth. The current plan is to disable the HTTPS redirect
  using geolocation for countries that have a  5% error rate for HTTPS
  requests.
 
  This discussion is technical, so I'm going to move back to wikitech-l,
 now.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Open Knowledge Foundation and Wikimedia Foundation

+1 Fae,

I know for sure Wikimedia France has organized events with OKFN in France
(such as Public domain day event in 2012 and 2013). I'll drop a word a WMFR
lists.

 Good idea Tom. As it's a wiki, I have taken the initiative to move the
 page to http://wiki.okfn.org/Open_Knowledge_Foundation_and_Wikimedia,
 as based on the page introduction it appears to be intended to cover
 projects wider than partnerships directly with the Wikimedia
 Foundation. There are many other groups like the Wikimedia Chapters
 and the evolving Wikimedia thematic organizations, that act
 independently but are part of the Wikimedia community, and run all
 sorts of interesting open knowledge content projects, as well as
 lobbying for legal and government policy change to enable access to
 open knowledge.

 Cheers,
 Fae
