The purpose of Wikimedia Cloud Services is to make it easier for developers, system administrators, and other technical contributors to:
- try out improvements to Wikimedia infrastructure, including MediaWiki;

- create other projects related to a Wikimedia Project or to MediaWiki software development or testing.
You agree that your projects on Wikimedia Cloud Services will be related to these purposes. Consult with the Cloud Services administrators or the cloud mailing list if you would like to verify whether your project is within the scope of Wikimedia Cloud Services.

Abandoned tool policy
The Toolforge Abandoned Tool policy helps to protect Wikimedia wikis from loss of a useful tool. It defines processes for:
- Requesting to be added as co-maintainer of a tool which has no active maintainers (adoption)
- Requesting removal of inactive maintainers in a tool they have adopted (usurpation)
Please read and understand the Toolforge abandoned tool policy.
Right to fork policy
Please read and understand the Toolforge right to fork policy.
The Toolforge Standards Committee is a group of Wikimedia volunteers who review, approve, and facilitate access requests for the source code of Toolforge hosted tools and adoption and usurpation of abandoned tools.
