OK, having done some digging; this project seems to be

(e.g. this Wikimania video:
Obviously that is a concerning facet that needs to be cleared up also.
That video just says WMUK is looking forward to supporting the project
(which it is - that's why an MoU is being discussed). It doesn't say
it is a WMUK project (at least, I didn't notice anything saying that).
There has been some confusion about WMUK's involvement, though,
certainly. In particular, the project has been repeatedly linked to
Monmouthpedia in a way that suggests it is being organised by the same
organisation. The "GibraltarpediA" mark doesn't help - in fact, it
probably infringes on the "MonmouthpediA" mark. I know there were some
issues with the use of the Wikipedia mark, which I believe were
resolved with the WMF. I'm not aware of WMUK granting a license to use
the "[Placename]pediA" mark, though.
