... Wikimedia Eesti doesn't directly control any nameservers (however we control many DNS records of domains through two hosting providers we use, Zone.eu as one of them) and there is no standard service available we could use to do it (our current providers don't offer such a service AFAIK).

Slaporte added a comment to T95129: Publish Wikimedia's WordPress blog theme in Git.

Just to clarify the current status, the only thing missing here is an explicit license on the published code. https://wordpress.org/news/2009/07/themes-are-gpl-too/ makes it clear that the PHP parts of WordPress themes must be GPL. The only thing we still need WMF-Legal clarification on is the license status of the images and JS/CSS parts of the theme, so adding the appropriate tags. I would hope based on https://developer.wordpress.org/themes/getting-started/wordpress-licensing-the-gpl/#do-i-need-to-license-my-themes-under-the-gpl that the rest of the theme is also GPL.

Yes, that is what happened - yesterday @Slaporte and I sat down a bit to look into this. He managed to retrieve the instructions he had received from @ZhouZ way back when this was handed over, including the exact crontab data with which we restored the job. @Slaporte was going to post an update here but I think wanted to wait until after the first successful run (which has now occurred), sorry that we ended up duplicating some work on this.

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.

I recommend the GPLv3. If you have a preference for Apache 2.0, please shoot me an email.

@mmodell: Which of these contributions were made by Wikimedia Foundation staff as part of their work? We can help reach out to people to get their agreement if you need help.

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.
