@kaldari It seems we have goal #4 in T167400: Disable serving unpatrolled new files to Wikipedia Zero users, and it is an important one to the Commons community to end the piracy issue. The uploads of IP protected media are not necessarily coming from WP0, but it is large groups of WP0 users that are organized to download said material. We can play whack-a-mole all day with uploaders, but it is believed the situation will not go away until we remove access to downloading the files. Is this something we're going to look into?

Yes, thank you. I'm now subscribed to T129845 (restricted), which contains all the useful links.
Someone hit English Wikinews the other day as well ([https://en.wikinews.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Edman_Musik3|blocked account]). According to @Dispenser , the files were deleted within ten minutes but still accessed ~100,000 times.

@JMinor great, that sounds reasonable to me. Hopefully it will to others. Thanks!

Makes sense, thank you.
Product management at the WMF still needs to give a sign-off, but that part is up to the department heads to get together and work it out.
The TCG is "finished" as much as a wiki page can be - it's always ready to be updated or altered as needed.
As I discussed with Quim, this task ended up stalled this quarter because of demands on the team's time. To do this properly, we need:

Reviewed the previous ORES work in relation to the TCG, reviewed the TCG itself, and set up a plan for proposing and developing an ORES auditing tool: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Meta-ORES

The (start) list of pages is here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Technical_Collaboration_Guidance/Index
The assembled document doesn't seem to actually need this assessment in its current form. I don't see the usefulness in completing this task as it is. The third column might be revived as "uses" or something like that.

@Quiddity I think this is something we can achieve together, between me organizing the page to match a new workflow with your help in creating a template/advanced styling of the help page. We'll talk soon when you wrap up some other projects.

The TCG needs further review between product and TC. These discussions are to be arranged by TC and product leads, they are out of my control.

This will be happening with ORES this quarter.
March meeting done, scheduling April as we speak. Closing this task as completed.
