We are pleased to announce that the Wikimedia Foundation and Yahoo!
have reached an agreement by which Yahoo will provide hosting capacity
to Wikimedia.

Yahoo will dedicate a significant number of servers in one of its
Asian facilities for hosting Wikimedia's free content websites.

As of today, Yahoo! will also test the integration of Wikipedia
content in its French-language Yahoo! Search shortcuts to be followed
by other languages to accommodate users in Asia, Latin America,
Europe, and the U.S. The shortcuts will show contextually relevant
abstracts of Wikipedia articles in response to user queries.
