I'm also co-creator of Listen to Wikipedia, seealso.org, and a few other projects.

Slaporte added a comment to T174528: Tool for displaying a user contribution summary.

One challenge is figuring out how and why people would visit this page. Is it a resume/personal page that users would promote about themselves? A tool for people to research other Wikipedians? Is it a proof of concept for a user page replacement?

A resume/showcase, yes. There are benefits to having that integrated with MediaWiki (branding, mainly), but in the short term outweighted by the drawbacks, IMO. The Toolforge is ideal for experimentation, a MediaWiki extension is not - the required investment for making the feature available to anyone at all is too large. Even if the end goal were to include it, building popularity as a Toolforge tool and porting later if it does turn out to be popular is a better approach.

Slaporte added a comment to T154912: Is User-Agent data PII when associated with Action API requests?.

I think we are getting side tracked here. The user agents on api are of a different nature than browser UAs and there is no point on parsing/agreggating those with ua-parser which is made for UAs that follow the usual "browser protocol". The point of this ticket is not to decide whether UAs "in general" are identifying (they are, and that is well stablished) but rather whether APIs UAs have any expectation of privacy.

It is a fundamentally different question as in the UA policy (https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User-Agent_policy) we explicitly ask users to include an e-mail or similar with their request to api so we can identify them. Then, it really seems that data has no expectation of privacy just like @Tgr pointed out early on.

If the user-agent data is non-public and may be used to identify individual users, then it should be kept private under the Privacy Policy. It may be possible to aggregate some user-agent data to the point that it is no longer identifiable, but it would need to be reviewed before its published.

Slaporte added a comment to T111224: Define maps attribution text.

Hi folks, I'd like to ask some clarifications about the current wikimedia maps licensing. Is it allowed to access the tile map server from a commercial application? Thanks.

My entirely unofficial interpretation is that there is no restriction against use in a commercial application provided that it complies with the requirements of "Using maps in third-party services". This does not mean it is a good idea to base an application on it, commercial or otherwise.

We reserve the right to discontinue or change our service, block or limit certain users or applications, or take other measures in cases at our sole discretion at any time without notice

If you build a business or software around using the maps server, it could go away if your use causes a problem for WMF needs. You should also not hard-code the TMS URL into your app.

Slaporte added a comment to T153871: Ability to rescind signatures on Legalpad.

Rescinding an agreement is little more complicated than just removing a signature from the terms. Termination may depend on the text of the agreement itself (eg, even if you want to cancel a confidentiality agreement, you still need to respect the confidentiality around private data you accessed). It may be misleading to people if they can "delete" their signature but the agreement isn't really cancelled.

Slaporte added a comment to T76158: Pitfalls checklist for software using AGPL.

@Legoktm please send @ZhouZ or me an email for guidance on deploying or contributing to AGPL code. We're currently looking at it on a case-by-case basis.

Stephen, this doesn't really help me because I'm still waiting for a response from you or another legal team member about a different software/copyright related matter since August 8th (and resent on September 6th). If email is the recommended communication medium, how long should I expect to wait to get a response about AGPL software?

We can put together some short guidance so it's not only "behind closed doors", but in the meantime you can get advice if you need it for a specific situation via email. We have the checklist that Luis mentioned above for internal use.
