Re: [Foundation-l] wikipedia, metawiki, wiktionnaire restricted from China AGAIN?

FYI, after talking to the smart tech folks of Wikimedia, access to
*.wikipedia.org from China should be back to the state of affairs as
of a few days ago.

That is, everything accessible except for zh.wikipedia.org. I can
confirm this is true from my Beijing connection.

Yes, you are right. The government have banned zh.wikipedia.org using the GFW(Greate Firewall).
For more information about it, plz visit http://www.proxysnow.com/index.php?q=uggc%3A%2F%2Fmu.jvxvcrqvn.bet%2Fjvxv%2FTSJ .

I suggest you try to use some add-on software to resolve the problem such as Tor or gladder.
