Heather added a comment to T200742: partial German translation shows up in English text on wikimediafoundation.org.

Hi everyone,
The German language version of the Wikimedia vision you are seeing on the website is a writing choice, not a bug. It is entered into the CMS in the same way the rest of the writing is added to the site, and shows up exactly the way we intended and expected it to.

Heather added a comment to T599: add 15.wikipedia.org / annual report 2015.

What is this assuming, exactly? I'm thinking any implementation here would be some version of a static HTML file on a server (which is essentially what happens with MediaWiki wikis behind a caching layer...). A potential compromise in what sense or in which scenarios are you talking about here? What's the actual threat or concern here?

An attacker would need to find an XSS in the static site. Unfortunately it's not just a "static HTML file", there's also a bunch of JS being loaded, including a file from tool labs (which has been compromised in the past).

You make good points. There are a few reasons why focusing on only Wikipedia for the 15th anniversary could be confusing, or a bad idea. We’ve spent a lot of time thinking about this, because we want to be as inclusive of different communities and languages as possible. As a result, this year our intention is to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the birth of an amazing idea and community. It is not about English Wikipedia, or even about Wikipedia alone. 15 January 2001, is the start of this great movement and human accomplishment that we think should be celebrated.

Heather added a comment to T543: Wikimedia name and logo in Wikimedia SUL login button.

I've asked Yana if it's a trademark problem. Branding-wise, the flower alone is probably the best solution with what you have, and we don't have strong guidelines set for Mediawiki. I made a black and white (but not exactly pretty) version for the trademark recording process if it helps at all. The flower with brackets is fairly hard to parse at small scale as we know.
