[Wikimedia-l] The Open Law Book project on Wikisource

Michal Lester
 Hi all,
Together with the Public Knowledge Workshop[1], a non-profit organization
whose mission is to release public information, we signed a Declaration of
Principles with the Israeli Parliament regarding the Open Law Book project
on Wikisource[2]. This project began in 2004 and is an initiative to make
all the laws and regulations passed by the parliament accessible to the
public in a clear and reliable manner. Recently, the Israeli Parliament
launched the National Legislation Database, which contains all information
and data regarding the state's laws. In the  collaboration agreement signed
between the three stakeholders, it is agreed that the Nationals Legislation
Database will include links to the corresponding information in the Open
Law Book, while vice versa the database may freely use any information from
the Open Law Book. This collaboration will allow the public to have the
most up-to-date information in a clear and understandable way, and thus
also increase the transparency of legislation in Israel. This
groundbreaking achievement is an example to the kind of impact that open
knowledge initiatives can have on civil life.

Hi Michal,

Congrats for the initiative, that is, indeed, an awesome achievement!

Just some nitpicky points:

* It would be desirable to clarify to Hasadana [1] that Wikimedia Israel is
an independent organization, and that they are jointly working with
"Wikimedia Israel", not "Wikimedia". [1]
* It is also important that they do not say that Wikisource is their
website [2], because it is not.


[1] ".This is what Hasada and Wikimedia’s joint project, Open Law Book
<https://he.wikisource.org/wiki/%D7%A1%D7%A4%D7%A8_%D7%94%D7%97%D7%95%D7%A7%D7%99%D7%9D_%D7%A9%D7%9C_%D7%9E%D7%93%D7%99%D7%A0%D7%AA_%D7%99%D7%A9%D7%A8%D7%90%D7%9C?utm_source=Test&utm_campaign=c830d400b6-Donors_Newsletter3_14_2015&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_a885ddb65c-c830d400b6->"
http://www.hasadna.org.il/en/2015/03/5728/
[2] " It is a Wikisource based website, making Israel’s laws open,
accessible and free. Needless to say – we published the Tax Ordinance on
our website, and it can be found here" (link points to Wikisource)
