Thanks all!

Surprising as it might seem for a company our size, we don't have any
consultants polishing our Wikipedia pages.

I'm not in communications at all: I'm in R&D, but our Corporate
Communications team really does want to act in good faith, which is
why they started talking to me: they're trying to understand the rules
before doing anything, and I want to help them connect with the right
people in the projects, and help them figure out how they're allowed
to contribute responsibly and openly.

Kind regards,
