I had previously wrote an email suggesting we
standardize the tag lines accompanying the logos
meta. The problem surfaced at EN Wikipedia when
six months of reading Wikisource The free
tag line was changed during the Main Page
At the time I wrote I had thought the situation
cooled off. It seems that was premature. Things
flared up now at Template talk:WikipediaSister.
Neither side is going to convince the other at
point. Truly how the projects are represented is
Foundation decision. This situation will not be
resolved until the Foundation makes that decision,
declares who the decision should be delegated
I don't see how the decision can be meaninfully made
by anyone *but*
the community themselves, ie in this case,
Wikisource. But I don't
know who would make this decision at the Foundation
level, maybe the
board, maybe Jimbo himself.
I don't want to re-ignite the debate, but I'll make
my own comment. I
followed the discussion more or less before and I've
read the page you
linked to. I liked the 'compromise' of "free-content
then I realised that all Wikimedia projects are free
free library" is fine, and, bottom line, it's what
already agreed on. If/when they agree on another,
it'll be changed, as
has already been said.
I am not sure how it the decision would come about
either. Of course I agree with your assement of the
situation, but others don't. Until one side or the
other hears something authoritative I am afraid this
will be unsettled.
