Hi all, Some months ago, the idea of setting up an onion service for Wikimedia projects was discussed on this list and as a proposal in IdeaLab on Meta.
Today, Alec Muffett announced on Twitter that he created «as an experiment» a series of read-only mirrors of all the Wikimedia projects. He will be running them for some time. The service is reachable with a Tor-enabled browser at the following address: https://www.qgssno7jk2xcr2sj.onion/ If you want to try out the service, first visit the addresses listed in this page and add exceptions for the SSL certificates: https://gist.github.com/alecmuffett/3da587fde6aef90ba3e49e8858fafdae (this is one of the limits of having a non-official service) Alec Muffett is the author of the Enterprise Onion Toolkit (EOTK), a FLOSS project which "does for Onions what LetsEncrypt does for SSL", that is providing a simple way to transform websites in Onion services (which are accessible only and contained within the Tor network). Alec used EOTK for creating this demo. He was also behind the onion service for Facebook. IMO this service, even with its current limitations, is quite awesome and I am very happy to see it. It is exactly the kind of proof of concept that I wanted to create with my proposal. So now there's that. Enjoy!
