Hi Thomas

AFAIK the wiki has been migrated recently. Is it now running on a more powerful infrastructure? Would it now be possible to install the Semantic MediaWiki extension?

Regards Gubaer 10:46, 21 February 2010 (UTC)


Hi Thomas,

in addition to Semantic MediaWiki we also need Semantic Forms, mainly for two additional parser functions. I can't install it myself, can I? Could you install the package?

Thank, Gubaer 16:49, 11 January 2009 (UTC)


Hi Thomas,

yet another extension we would need. Could you install this one too?

Appreciate your help Karl


Hi Thomas, I'd like to start a discussion on whether and how we could adopt Semantic MediaWiki for gardening map features, the discussion is here. I think the concept is now pretty stable and we have a working prototype on your dev snapshot Do you know about other wiki gardeners or sysops we should get in touch with in order to push this forward?

Sandbox

Hi Thomas, I started the project FOSSGIS/Server/Projects/Sandbox to make a sandbox who everywhere can test and learn - espacially newbies. Now I heard from User:Amm, that a sandbox already exist, but without rendering. I think its a better base to build a sandbox, if the datas are not necessary. Because I'm planning to erase datas after few time (24-48 hours). What do you think, is it all possible? Greetings, --ChristianKnorr 09:31, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

So far the sandboxes I run have been used for software testing purposes for API client and editor developers. However, it has always been my intention to also use one (api06.dev.openstreetmap.org) as a free-for all as well, with fairly live rendering, so that it could be used for newbies to play against.
This also ties in with a long term wish by myself to set up a mapnik development environment on dev, so that we can host multiple sets of tiles there for various custom rendering projects. Of course, none of this has happened yet due to lack of time on my part, but it is still on my todo list. --Thomas Wood 09:45, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
Fine Smiley ).png. What do you need, apart from time? I would like to help. --ChristianKnorr 10:01, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
I pretty much have all I need, I have root access to the OSM dev server, I have the skills required to set up differential osm2pgsql updates and mod_tile with mapnik... It is just the time, which is a big shame. (I have exams coming soon, so really need to start revising for them). I will try and get it done as soon after them as possible. --Thomas Wood 23:09, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

Missing file information

Hello! And thanks for your upload - but some extra info is necessary.

Sorry for bothering you about this, but it is important to know source of the uploaded files.

Are you the author of image File:Sutton NPE.PNG ?

Or is it copied from some other place (which one?)?

Please, add this info to the file page - something like "I took this photo" or "downloaded from -website link-" or "I took this screeshot of program XYZ".

Doing this would be already very useful.

Licensing - photos

In case that you are the author of the image: Would you agree to open licensing of this image, allowing its use by anyone (similarly to your OSM edits)?

In case where it is a photo you (except relatively rare cases) author can make it available under a specific free license.

Would you be OK with CC0 (it allows use without attribution or any other requirement)?

Or do you prefer to require attribution and some other things using CC-BY-SA-4.0?

If you are the author: Please add {{CC0-self}} to the file page to publish the image under CC0 license.

You can also use {{CC-BY-SA-4.0-self}} to publish under CC-BY-SA-4.0 license.

Once you add missing data - please remove {{Unknown|subcategory=uploader notified March 2022}} from the file page.

Licensing - other images

If it is not a photo situation gets a bit more complicated.

See Drafts/Media file license chart that may help.

note: if you took screenshot of program made by someone else, screenshot of OSM editor with aerial imagery: then licensing of that elements also matter and you are not a sole author.

note: If you downloaded image made by someone else then you are NOT the author.

Note that in cases where photo is a screenshot of some software interface: usually it is needed to handle also copyright of software itself.

Note that in cases where aerial imagery is present: also licensing of an aerial imagery matter.

Help

Feel free to ask for help if you need it - you can do it for example by asking on Talk:Wiki: new topic.

Please ask there if you are not sure what is the proper next step. Especially when you are uploading files that are not your own work or are derivative work (screenshots, composition of images, using aerial imagery etc).

If you are interested in wider discussion about handling licencing at OSM Wiki, see this thread.

(sorry if I missed something that already states license and source: I am looking through over 20 000 files and fixing obvious cases on my own, in other I ask people who upladed files, but it is possible that I missed something - in such case also please answer)
