So, if you've not been following along on wikivoyage-l (
https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikivoyage-l ), you
should know that Wikivoyage is now hosted on WMF servers. :) We're
currently in "beta", as there's still lots of smaller and larger
issues to work through, including transferring images to Commons or
local wikis as appropriate. But now's a great time to get involved if
you want to help fix things. These are the languages that are live


But, any other language code should gracefully redict you to Wikimedia
Incubator, where you can easily get started to prove viability of a
new language. :-)

Like I said: Lots of things are still wonky. If you notice something
you can't fix, please report it on Bugzilla and add it as a blocker
for the tracking bug here:


While we're not done yet, I'd like to take this chance to thank
everyone who's been part of the process so far:

* the existing communities for being awesome in supporting this migration :-)
* Wikivoyage e.V. and especially Hans (for being our main tech contact
managing the DB transfers), Stefan (for handling all the
organizational fun), and Roland (for technical support and review).
* the WMF technical launch team: Chris Steipp, Daniel Zahn, Matthias
Mullie, Sam Reed + everyone who chipped in with help and support.
* the WMF legal and community advocacy team: Geoff Brigham, Kelly Kay,
Philippe Beaudette, and everyone else who helped.
* anyone else I've forgotten to name :-)

All the best,
