The documentation can include "get it upstream", but our users are likely
going to look first at our documentation (since they have no idea what
Zotero is).

attackers. If we can get creative about how to handle those, we should.

I don't see the concern here. There is no protectable interest in merely the fact that this article is a translation of the other article, so no one needs to consent to it being added to the database.

I don’t have a lot of time to respond in detail today, but I will try to do so soon. In the meantime, I’m confused - why is Apache acceptable where CC0 is not, @hashar? The attribution requirement, or…? I feel like I must be missing something.

LuisV_WMF added a comment to T14363: Moved pages should be listed in NewPages/RecentChanges with current title, namespace, existence etc..

It was originally marked high because it is actively exploited by paid editors. Assuming that is still going on and the folks who check new pages for advertising have not found a good workaround, I think this should still be high.

I hope you won't be offended if I'm skeptical that you have the skills/ability to write a compiler that is worth keeping proprietary but not get access to a server that can run a bot regularly.

This is an interesting question. It's hard to write a policy without examples - do you think you could come up with some of the existing usages you mean to replace/supplement/what have you? (I've got a bunch in my own head, of course, but (1) I suspect your list is more diverse and (2) I want to make sure we're on the same page before filling things in.)

I think it's against the spirit of the TOU, if not necessarily the letter - the idea was that if the original maintainer vanishes, others can reasonably pick up and continue their work. That can't happen if there is no widely-available toolchain.
