Update on the topic.
Since Request Network were so slow and reluctant to change their delusive
communication into a fair and clean information, Wikimédia France broke the
agreement with them. Thus, this partnership is over.
We deleted our blog post about it. And we keep on trying to obtain the same
from Request Network (who are turning a deaf ear until now).
Once again, sorry for the noise and thanks for alerting us,

First of all, thanks for reporting the issue. Impressive reactivity :)
Then, sorry for the intempestive and unwelcome communication about this
local partnership. The agreement is quite clear, it has been established by
Wikimédia France (of course *not* in name of Wikimedia Foundation) and
our partners are obviously *not allowed* to use any of Wikimedia projects
Today, Request Network updated their posts to clarify things and
suppressed Wikipedia logo from their communication messages :
We updated our blog post as well, with an introductive warning :
After the week-end and labor day (1 May), we are expecting that all
occurrences of this misunderstanding have disappeared.

According to their twitter feed they have
announced a partnership with
something called the "Request Network" for cryptocurrency donations.

Ok. I don't approve but I'm not french so not its not an area where I
can reasonably expect anyone to pay any attention to my opinions.
What concerns me is that they have retweeted something claiming the
partnership is with the wikimedia foundation rather than just
Is some form of clarification possible?
