A few quick notes:

  1. Path /w/ does not yet redirect, e.g. https://wikimediafoundation.org/w/index.php?search=edit.
  1. The NewRelic analytics tracking is still enabled (view-source and look for js-agent.newrelic.com). I assume that we'll disable this, the same way we did for blog.wikimedia.org and policy.wikimedia.org.
  1. The new site's newly made Privacy policy dated today (July 30) doesn't seem to mention that its hosted by a third party.

Instead, https://wikimediafoundation.org/privacy-policy/ says "This privacy policy applies to non-wiki sites that are hosted by the Wikimedia Foundation" and "If we ever use third-party [..]". That seems incorrect. This should currently state Automatic's policy, as well as New Relic's policy (unless disabled).

Note that the Privacy policy of the Policy microsoft (also hosted by WP-VIP) does mention this correctly, e.g https://policy.wikimedia.org/privacy-policy/ states "This site is hosted by Automattic".

See this ticket for info on redirects: [T200754]

I will bring this up with developers.

Pinging @APalmer_WMF from Legal to speak to that. :)

Hello! Quick question, but the colors used on the new website could pose an accessibility issue to those with vision difficulties. Is there a plan to mitigate these types of accessibility issues, or is the plan just to suggest folks use a screen reader? All and all I do like the concept of the new website though :)

Please file a separate task with the wikimediafoundation.org project tag set and provide steps to reproduce. Thanks a lot!

Varnent triaged this task as Medium priority.
Varnent updated the task description. (Show Details)

Now that site is up - updated description to clarify this tracking ticket relates to actions pertaining to the launch. General tickets about the new site should be tagged with wikimediafoundation.org project.

Will this new WMF home page get translation for others language than English?
