Wikimedia Organisations Seminar

Welcome to the seminar!

Dear colleague, great that you are coming to Wikimania! At the moment, I am busy with the preparation of our seminar: Wikimedia Chapters Association - Organisations Seminar. Maybe this is interesting also for you, if you are connected to a Wikimedia organisation or want to become? Kind regards Ziko (talk) 18:45, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

Videos

  • On Youtube the license is not indicated, so what is the license of this videos?
    • On YouTube, the videos are set to CC-By. (That's the only libre option available on YouTube.) The actual presentation may have additional copyright restrictions on them; check the submission page of the session (linked from video) and assume CC-By-SA for everything you see on this wiki unless otherwise specified.
  • Why this videos are on Youtube and not on Commons?
    • Because we don't have the computing power to upload them to Commons. See the technical reasons on this thread. Deryck Chan (talk) 10:38, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Does it make sense, that I copy now the Wikimania2013 Youtube videos to Commons?
    • Apparently that's against YouTube's terms of use. [1]
      • Yes, I don't care. Wikimedia (HK) has the right on these contents, so if this is OK for you, this OK to me.
  • Do we already have a bug report concerning the lack of connectivity between HK and Commons servers? If not, I think we should create one. What do you think?
    • The problem is the small hardware bandwidth between HK and USA in general, not to the WMF datacenters in particular. Deryck Chan (talk) 11:08, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
      • We have to do the necessary to allow people to upload content to commons, I don't care about the tech. details. Google has found a solution, we might too. Kelson (talk) 11:11, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
        • Yes, the solution is called "putting a WMF datacenter in Hong Kong", which WMF has already ruled out due to the lack of Fair Use in copyright law in Hong Kong. Deryck Chan (talk) 14:00, 24 January 2014 (UTC)
          • I think the problem should be investigated further to identify where is exactly the bottleneck. There might be other ways to fix this problem (for example, installing a few reverse-proxies in well connected datacenters). That's why it's important that people in HK deliver more technical information (a traceroute would be a start). Kelson (talk) 14:39, 24 January 2014 (UTC)
