Open, LowPublic


This task is about editing kartographer-wv-warning-external-source-message and kartographer-wv-warning-external-source-agree in the /mediawiki/extensions/Kartographer codebase.

Out of T186291: Get Legal opinion re whether we need to improve privacy warning for Kartographer external layers discussion we decided the external data source wording could be improved. The current wording is

External data source
This content is hosted externally, so enabling it shares your data with other sites.

  • We can be more specific than "your data". It shares what you're looking at (e.g. that you're looking at the page on Brussels and a map of Belgium) with the map provider
  • "It's okay" doesn't make it clear that the warning is dismissed forever
