摘要

此頁描述由維基媒體基金會發起的硬體捐贈方案,包含申請流程的說明。

2017年9月時可以提供的筆記型電腦約略數量:

約40個

接下來很可能分發筆電的社群: 2018年WikiIndaba(突尼西亞);2018年維基媒體大會(柏林)

關於此方案

在維基媒體基金會平常辦公運作的過程中,經常會折舊硬體資產,而基金會現在想要捐贈這些被折舊但仍然狀況良好且可以繼續再運作幾年的硬體,來提供志工社群協助跟基金會使命一致的工作。

為了確保受贈者可以正常使用,捐贈的硬體會以全新安裝的Ubuntu Linux,加上一個全球適用的電源供應器。

下列將敘述這場前導年裡一系列分配的標準和流程。這個計畫很新,當我們知道怎麼更好的處理時相信還會有變動。

技術與財務相關的流程會在內部進行,而不會在這邊紀錄。這個頁面描述可以獲贈硬體,還有怎麼做

設計原則

依照重要程度排序:

原則#1:此方案一定要非常低成本,不論是資金的支出或是工作人員投入的時間成本。

原則#2:此方案的目標是讓需要這硬體的人能夠拿到手,並極有可能會用它來貢獻維基媒體使命。

原則#3:「為了最大化實用程度」,分配應該要公平。這並不保證任何特定人一定會收到硬體,而是著重在每個人都有得到硬體禮物的平等機會,永遠遵循原則#1和原則#2。

原則#4:此方案不是設計來提供短期需求者,不是給得在某個截止日前一定要拿到的人。如果所需設備有想要明確可以提供的時間點,那這應該在既有的其他補助方案中申請。因為原則#1,即使就算捐獻已被核可了,但也「不保證」硬體的送達時間或運送方式。

標準

必備條件

要申請硬體,申請者(包含申請者所代表的團體或自治體組織)必須要符合下列標準:

  • applicant(s) must have a record of contribution to Wikimedia projects of no less than 1 year and no less than 1000 contributions across all projects. This is meant to ensure we give hardware to people with some proven commitment to our mission. It is a necessary but not sufficient criterion, and no number of contributions would guarantee receiving an asset.
  • applicant must agree to identify themselves to the Wikimedia Foundation, and to sign a brief agreement stating the intent of the donated hardware.
  • applicant cannot be a citizen of Iran, or appear in the United States Treasury's blacklist ("Specially Designated Nationals"). This is unfortunately imposed on the Wikimedia Foundation as a United States non-profit, and is not a Wikimedia decision.

Additional considerations

The following considerations would increase (but not guarantee) the likelihood of donating equipment to the applicants:

  • Applicants from low-income countries. No individual proof of income would be required or considered.
  • Applicants able to demonstrate accountable group ownership of hardware, e.g. a Wikimedia affiliate with adequate, public, and explicit procedures for determining allocation of hardware within the group.
  • Applicants with a successful record of putting Wikimedia Foundation resources (e.g. grants, scholarships) to impactful use.

Process

申請

Apply for a laptop by typing your exact username in the edit box and pressing the Request a laptop button below, and then filling out the simple on-wiki form.

Once submitted, your request may be endorsed by other volunteers, and feedback on the request may be posted on the request talk pages. However, feedback would not always be actively sought, and no particular time frame would be reserved for feedback before a decision would be made. If the inputbox below doesn't work for you, create a page manually named Hardware donation program/YOUR_USERNAME (with your own user name instead of "YOUR_USERNAME"), and paste into it the entire contents of this page and save. Then you can edit the resulting page.


Decision-making

  • A program officer from the Community Development (CD) Team at the Wikimedia Foundation (currently Asaf Bartov) reviews requests as time permits, on a relaxed schedule (probably no more than once a month) and makes decisions.
  • Requests may be declined or approved; in case of doubt, the program officer may request additional information from the applicant, and the request would be re-evaluated in the next evaluation cycle. The decision is made by the CD program officer, and may not be appealed.
  • If a request is deemed valid, feasibility will be assessed (how easy/convenient/even possible) it is for the potential recipient to receive the hardware. If it is deemed infeasible, the request would be declined.
  • Once a request is approved, the decision would be recorded publicly, and the applicant would be sent the agreement letter to sign.
  • Requests may be reviewed even when there is no equipment available for donation, on the understanding that approved donations would be fulfilled once additional depreciated equipment becomes available, according to the WMF's Office IT (OIT) team's schedule.

Delivery

Once the agreement letter is signed, the program officer would coordinate specific arrangements with the applicant over a private channel on how to deliver the equipment. Once a suitable mode of delivery is determined, the CD officer would contact OIT to receive the hardware, and proceed to deliver it as agreed.

  • To keep costs down, equipment would most often be delivered as opportunity permits by staffers agreeing to serve as couriers and carry the equipment with them on a trip where they would meet the applicants (e.g. Wikimania, Wikimedia Conference, regional conferences), or their compatriots (if they'd agree to deliver the equipment to the applicants by prior arrangement).
  • shipping the equipment may be considered if costs are quite low and the risk of customs delays or additional fees is known to be low.
  • the staffer would only bring the equipment to the international meeting if the applicant (or delegate of theirs) is known to be attending, i.e. has secured a visa and has a booked flight ticket.
  • All this means that it is entirely possible very deserving requests would not be fulfilled because it would be prohibitively expensive to get the equipment physically delivered.

Completion

Upon delivery of the equipment, applicants would confirm receipt of the equipment publicly, on the wiki page of the request. Once confirmed, the donation is considered effected, and closed.  Recipients of donated hardware are encouraged, but not required, to record the use the hardware is put to, on the request page, or in blogs or social media posts, linked from the request page.

Such documentation can be motivating for other volunteers to request hardware, and for the WMF Office IT team to continue putting in the work to prepare and provide this hardware.
