This is the first time Wikimedia Israel developed an instructional tool in English for the use of the whole Wikmedia community and beyond - as opposed to our other tools that were aimed for the Hebrew or Arabic speaking communities. As such, it is also the first time we are hosting a tool on Toolforge.
All our other tools (mostly Wordpress sites, like the one on Toolforge) are hosted in Israel at a commercial hosting service, and maintenance (Wordpress update and security) is done by a commercial company. However, I am not sure this company would provide maintenance for the WDQS tutorial given that access to Toolforge requires a Wikimedia developer account, a Wikitech account, SSH access - not the kind of things commercial services are keen to get into...
I was wondering if any of you have some on what we could do to ensure the WDQS tutorial is kept up-to-date and secure.
I believe maintenance would take up to 2-3 hours per month - this is not a huge undertaking, but at our organization we do not have anyone in-house who is savvy enough to do it.
Do you know or can suggest someone who knows how to maintain a Wordpress site AND is familiar with the Toolforge? Are you this someone?!? Or maybe you know someone that might know someone?
Any input regarding this issue would be much appreciated.
