Yuhong added a comment to T120288: Enable MP3 uploads on Wikimedia Commons and TMH playback.

It been 7 months since MP3 decoding support dropped in RedHat Fedora Linux, Chromium (the FLOSS fork that doesn't support H.264) will now have MP3 support. Will Wikipedia be the last Open Source project to get MP3 support?
Since all browsers will have playback support (no need to transcode). I suggest before Wikimania (Aug 9) we allow .mp3 uploads T162395.

@CKoerner_WMF I think the most important thing that needs to be understood here is that any decision to enable mp3 uploading on Commons that is not implemented as the result of a explicit decision by the Commons community is likely to end badly. Now that the legal issues have been cleared up, and it's established that the technical implementation is not a problem, most of this discussion really needs to move onwiki, so that the community as a whole will have an 'investment' in the process of deciding how it is implemented. If a plan such as yours (which is not bad) is presented to the community as a 'fait accompli', even if merely for discussion, there will be grumbling.
If the decision is presented to the community as a request for them to 'rubber stamp' a process that has been predecided, not only will it get complaints at the time, but if there are issues then the WMF is likely to be blamed. It's unfortunate, but realistic.

Yuhong added a comment to T166024: Once it's not patent-encumbered, enable MPEG-2 support for Commons uploads and TMH/etc. playback.

There are already very few patents remaining on MPEG-2. It is probably not as important as MP3 though.

Yuhong added a comment to T88507: The certificate chains of newly installed SHA256 certificates are incomplete..

This is a myth. "RapidSSL SHA256 CA - G3" is definitely SHA256. The other intermediate is for compatibility with older clients such as XP/Server 2003 (but note that XP has root certificate update enabled by default).
