Dear all,

In January it was announced that Wikimedia UK had reached an agreement with
Roger Bamkin and Terence Eden  to accept the donation of the intellectual
property rights of QRpedia to Wikimedia UK. WMUK are choosing to do this
via a company called Cultural Outreach limited.

This will mean that in future the site qrpedia.org will be managed by
Cultural Outreach Ltd and governed by the Wikimedia UK Website Privacy

Both the domains qrpedia.org and qrwp.org were transferred to the registrar
maintained by Cultural Outreach Ltd as of today. This is a notice that the
server hosting for the sites will be changed at 22:00 on Sunday 22nd
December. Users should not notice any difference, however there is the very
slight chance that in some cases QR codes may not work for short periods
during the switch.

If you experience a problem you can report it by emailing
Tech at wikimedia.org.uk or by logging a bug at the Wikimedia UK install of
bugzilla (https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org.uk/)
