Are there any subdomains etc?
Or does the domain only need to point at 171.64.75.80?

@Miriam actually, if I may put a slight pressure: Given that Research Report will go out next week and we will link to research.wikimedia.org , let's make sure we have that info updated on the website.

We've had multiple attempts at this and it's not possible to move forward on this front without availability of engineering, design, and UX resources. The experiments envisioned all require changes in workflows and UIs for experimentation purposes, the kind of resources Research is neither staffed with or has access to.

@tizianopiccardi thanks for the update and great to see that you're there. :) Please make sure you advertise for it on wiki-research-l when the right time arrives.
@ArielGlenn storing a copy on our end sounds good. How can we go about keeping the data refreshed on our end? This is a one-time effort by tizianopiccardi and colleagues. Can we take the code from them and have a schedule for releasing HTML dumps the same way we do XML dumps?

No, there is a ticket for dumping parsed wikitext as it is stored in RESTBase but that's not a full page view with skin etc. Their code wouldn't help here; we're talking about rendering each page and saving it and that's prohibitively slow. I presume they used MediaWiki to do this, in fact.

I asked him to report any item missing in the analysis that is key for understanding the reader-->create account transition. He may have other questions outside of this realm that can be added to Future Directions in the page. Let's plan to resolve this task in a week unless major feedback comes in via Jon.
