So what comes next?

Throughout this week, the Communications department and core website team will 
be doing final tweaks and quality assurance testing in preparations for 

Over the coming weeks we will be working with affiliates and contributors 
around the world to make the site in available in Arabic, Chinese, French, 
German, Russian, and Spanish - in addition to the English version soft launched 
today. Once the translations are completed, we will be doing a more public 
announcement regarding the new website and begin more formally implementing 
usage of it.

Additionally, we will be holding office hours in the coming weeks.

What about the old website?

The old website (aka Foundation Wiki) will be given new life in the coming 
weeks as the Wikimedia Foundation Governance Wiki - where it will continue to 
house important documentation for the Wikimedia Foundation like policies, board 
resolutions and minutes, legal documents, etc. Additional information on the 
changes coming to that wiki and the plans for migrating archived content to 
Meta-Wiki will be available in the coming weeks.

What else should I know?

There is a lot of great things about this new website we are excited to share 
with all of you! More information about office hours will available in the 
coming weeks. Until then, we encourage you to take a look and contact me 
directly if you find any bugs, typos, or have any comments.

Thank you!

The Communications department greatly appreciates all of the discussions, work, 
and patience everyone has put into this gigantic undertaking. We are very close 
to the finish line, and today marks a significant step which was only possible 
with the help of the 100+ people involved.

On behalf of the Communications department and core website team (Heather, 
Zack, Katherine, Mel, and Greg),
