OGL copyright questionEdit

Hi wikibooks

I have a CC 3.0 SA OGL question

I might be contracted soon on an OGL project. This would involve bringing material from wikibooks onto another platform, and all updates on this platform fed back into wikibooks.

The only problem here is that the platform will be OGL.

Is there a problem with:  

  • OGL -> CC 3.0 SA  
  • CC 3.0 SA -> OGL

No editing for 30 minutes on 17 JanuaryEdit

You will not be able to edit the wikis for up to 30 minutes on 17 January 07:00 UTC. This is because of a database problem that has to be fixed immediately. You can still read the wikis. Some wikis are not affected. They don't get this message. You can see which wikis are not affected on this page. Most wikis are affected. The time you can not edit might be shorter than 30 minutes. /Johan (WMF)

Cookbook recipe: vandalism sprinkled with recordEdit

Twelve years ago, proposed to bake oil and flour at 400 ° (C or F ?) for one hour. This IP forgot to tell us that he/she was making his recipes in his fireproof kitchen. Fortunately, this is only intervention on WB. Now that I have just become a reviewers, I would like to thank all patrollers for their wonderful work in keeping WM healthy. --Eihel (discusscontribs) 08:47, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

Most prominent institutional partnerships?Edit

Is there any particular example of a large organization curating any book or collection in Wikibooks? For example, maybe there was an institutional partnership to bring a set of textbooks or training manuals here. Thanks for any project anyone can highlight. Blue Rasberry (talk) 17:05, 16 February 2019 (UTC)

@Bluerasberry: While Wikibooks does not explicitly partner with any universities as far as I know, it is not uncommon for instructors for a module to curate books here. Examples include University of Virginia (Lentis) and UCL (Issues in Interdisciplinarity 2018-19). Leaderboard (discusscontribs) 22:41, 16 February 2019 (UTC)
