Subject: #100usergroups social media campaign
To: Zanni Andrea <zanni.andrea84(a)gmail.com>
We are excited to inform you that we have officially passed a significant
milestone in the Wikimedia movement this week: having 100 user groups!!
To celebrate, we'd like to propose that each user group post a short
message on social media on *Friday 19 October 2018. *
To participate please post a unique fact about Wikisource Community User
Group on your social media account, using the hashtag *#100usergroups. *
We will then amplify some of these messages into the @wikimedia account.

*"Imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share in the
sum of all knowledge."*
In the Esperanto Wikisource we have get a licensing problem. Can you help
In the Esperanto User Group we have successfully advocated at the World
Esperanto Association to free their press communications, so we can put
them into Esperanto Wikisource. I have putted the first one as a test 
but was alerted about possible license incompatibility.
The material is under CC BY 4.0 but Wikisource is using CC BY-SA 3.0. (so
the problem is the version number) The argument is, that CC licenses are
"forward compatible" but not "retro compatible". So it is OK to put CC BY
3.0 material into CC BY 4.0 repository, but not the opposite.
In the meantime I have found, that another Wikisources are collecting
materials under CC BY 4.0, like
If it is OK to use CC BY 4.0 material in Wikisource, can you make some
short legal reasoning so I can inform the Esperanto community? (and if it
is not OK, we should think about the content already in use, like the
linked one upper)
The hyperlinks have been clubbed for the same video. Please share them
Not sure which video I was referring.
