Quick question - does that mean Wikinews is going out
of Beta now?
No, it doesn't. I'd say it's certainly a step towards moving out of
beta, but not the only condition.
It's probably more useful to think about specific language versions
going out of beta rather than Wikinews as whole doing so, since some
will reach that stage much sooner than others. Erik proposed some
criteria earlier this year, which suggested that before moving out of
beta, a Wikinews site should have a large number of new stories every
day, RSS feeds, regular original reporting and associated policies,
solid fact-checking, review and an archival process. See
and related mails in that thread.
