Just wanted to pass this on to everyone.  This is great news.
It's not as great news as if they had decided to take the
route Facebook took and run a hidden service, or if the English
Wikipedia community decided to allow editing for Tor users, but
it is still fantastic news to hear.

Thank you,
Derric Atzrott

This is just a quick update that as of late October, WMF is officially
hosting a Tor relay:

This is not an exit node, and it's just a small contribution to the
network. Really - anyone can do it: https://www.eff.org/torchallenge/

We want to note that editing via Tor is a whole other matter, and I
would refer to previous conversations on this list if you have questions
about the current state of things. We also currently have no plans to
run an exit node or a hidden service, but we're open to suggestions for
additional ways in which WMF can support anonymity and privacy.
