Organising WLM can be quite draining, especially for the international team and doubly so because many of the tools like Montage are also used for other photography competitions so there are lots of demands on their time. The last three months has seen the announcement of the international winners, and lots of work around that in terms of coordinating the various competitions and sharing the news. The WLM have been busy to say the least!
We're seven months away from the start of WLM 2018 so we have time on our side - though decisions about how to deal with separate contests for regions and countries would need to be settled head of then to help with promoting and organising contests.
There are three questions at the top of this thread, so I'll try to provide some thoughts on them.

Wikimedia UK supports two courses which use the extension, but neither should be running before September/October. What is the earliest the extension would be undeployed on the English Wikipedia?

We now have five citation templates:

Sorry, I should have made it clear I don't expect and answer now - I was leaving the question here to deal with at a later date. Thank you to the international team for the hard work you've put into the competition!
For 2018, if the UK's constituent countries each chose their top 10 would they each go through to the international competition?

The templates are set up so that there is a main author ("last", "first") a field for "other author" (ùghdar_eile), and a field to be used when there are multiple "other authors" (ùghdaran_eile). Both of those are in the data maps, but might not be obvious becuase they don't follow the "last", "first" format. Would that need to be changed?

Thanks for putting this together, it will be very useful. And I hope the hackathon goes well!

I've prepared maps for the other three templates:

Echoing what Stinglehammer said, this would be a big improvement to the user experience, and it would also be used at other institutions - Aberystwythand the Open University are two likely partners, and anyone who wants to run translation projects would really benefit.
Hi RobH thanks for setting the list up - it will still be useful for post-conference discussions so we'll keep it running. I've got the email with the admin password.

Great! If no one spots anything in the meantime, I'll work on the other templates next week.
Thank you, Mvolz.

Has this feature been activated on Wikipedia yet?
The focus will be on en.wikipedia.org (commons and wikidata might be peripheral but much less likely)

Thanks for letting me know, I'll see what can be done about uploading a new version of the file.

Does anyone know what the issue with the thumbnail is and how it can be fixed?

Just an idea, but would it be appropriate to have a banner on Wikimedia Commons linking to the blog post when it goes live?

Mea culpa - the event takes place on 5th March

Thanks @CKoerner_WMF for putting the announcement together. It covers the main points and I think linking to the Smithsonian and the ESA will really show why this is an important step.
Feb 23 2017
Depending on when the announcement would go out I might be able to chip in with the writing

I've had an update: the IP addresses are 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11.
Nov 18 2015
I've checked and I'm happy that's the address
Nov 17 2015
ah I see now. I'll double check and get back to you.
The range I was given by the venue was 192.68.49.*
Oct 12 2015
Sorry, the address is 129.215.133.* so perhaps whitelisting that smaller range would be enough?
