Hi all,

In regard to the recent wave of press we had, mostly in the english
media but spreading also to France, Italy and Germany, I consider it
very urgent that every project has a press page which describes the ways
how to contact Wikimedia and ask for verification of information.

It should be linked from the main page and contain at least the
following information:
* Link to a description of what the project is about (f.e. Wikipedia
articles about Wikipedia and Wikimedia or a special press dossier like
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Press_kit)
* Link to http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Press
- logos and
images for press use
* Statistics, Replies to our critics or whatever you have as additional
information
* Link to the official Wikimedia foundation press room at
http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Press_room
* Links to previous press releases and press coverage (if you have pages
for this)

Contact info:
* If you have trusted people on the wiki willing to act as local press
contact, add their name, email address and phone number there
These people should get in touch with me so I can direct local press
inquiries to them.
* general address for press inquiries is
[email protected]

If you haven't done already, please prepare such a page and link to it
from your main page. You can use the english page as example:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Press

The press release for the upcoming funddrive will be available soon on
meta wiki for translation. You can either distribute it locally over
your own distribution list if you have one or contact me to get an
account for the common distribution list to add your contacts and have
it distributed with a wikimedia address as sender.

greetings,
elian, writing here as the press officer of the Wikimedia Foundation
