In line with other redirects from wikimedia.org subdomains to Wikimedia Foundation website (examples: annual.wikimedia.org and transparency.wikimedia.org) - Communications and Legal departments within the Wikimedia Foundation are working on a new iteration of the Advocacy portal within the Wikimedia Foundation website (located at https://wikimediafoundation.org/advocacy/). In preparation for that, we are closing down the existing public policy site (located at https://policy.wikimedia.org) and redirecting it to this new location. The contract for the web hosting renews for the year at the end of this month, so we would like to setup the redirect and close the old site before then. It has already been archived, and we have another URL we can access the site via until it is closed by the host.
As such, the Communications and Legal departments within the Foundation are requesting that:
- 'policy.wikimedia.org' be redirected to 'wikimediafoundation.org/advocacy/'
This can be setup whenever it is ready, and has been approved by both departments. Please let me know as lead on org websites initiative if you have any questions. Thank you!
