Qgil added a comment to T236508: Videos from YouTube don't embed correctly in Space posts.

On a closer look in another Discourse instance hosted elsewhere, the onebox generated with a YouTube URL does serve an image directly from YouTube servers. Then I guess this might conflict with the privacy policy.

I want to add that YouTube is not a random third party website in this case. Many Wikimedia organizations have official accounts there, and they use them to stream events and for other promotional purposes. The streaming case cannot be translated to Commons nowadays.

I see your point, but what is technically possible? Even if a redirect from "wikihu-l@lists.wikimedia.org" (not a real mailing list anymore, just a redirect) to the Discourse email address would work (e.g. "space+huwiki@wikimedia.org", a POP3 mailbox), the emails received by the people wouldn't have "wikihu-l@lists.wikimedia.org" in the From/Reply-To.

Discourse accesses wikimedia.space@gmail.com via POP3 and converts incoming email in posts located in the categories defined after the "+" sign. In the past I tried to use a @wikimedia.org mailbox instead of a gmail.com, unsuccessfully due to (apparently) a limitation in the package the Foundation has contracted to Google. I should check again, so we can have a nice @wikimedia.org email address for this.

I understand the initial resistance but, really, it can also be said that sending regular Wikimedia contributors to high traffic talk pages in Meta has also a risk of losing engagement. I don't think many volunteers feel engaged keeping up watching a page with a traffic like, say, en.wiki Technical Village Pump, only to check whether a certain question has been answered, check a diff across multiple sections...

OK, we are still fine tuning this Wikimedia login plugin, which right now it is not fully working as expected on desktop. Let's revisit this task when T215052 is marked as resolved.

@Elitre Can you check with the team, please? I have my brain too spread with other tasks and I fear not being a good reviewer right now.

The "who to ask at the Foundation" use case is different than this one and it is being addressed at T232983: Process to handle questions addressed to the Wikimedia Foundation. Just like in here there we are also trying to design a process that is feasible to implement and relies on good collaboration between volunteers and different roles and teams at the Foundation instead of relying on a single individual.
