Hi Gerard,

Yes, I saw this news as well.

It looks like most but not all Wikimedia sites pass Google's test.

Personally I hope we invest heavily in Mobile Web in the next annual plan.
I would like to see growth in mobile readership and growth in mobile
contributions, and year-over-year growth in combined desktop and mobile
readership and contributions.

Thanks,

Pine

our past, in which we must delve The well of our future,The clear water we
must leave untainted for those who come after us,The fertile earth, in
which truth may grow in bright places, tended by many hands,And the broad
fall of sunshine, warming our first steps toward knowing how much we do not
know.*
