The Wikimedia Wikitech wiki contains public documentation used by the site admins running the Wikimedia Foundation's servers. The wiki originally released its textual content under the GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL), but during early 2013, it was noticed it now uses the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 license (CC-BY-SA-3.0). It had previous;y upgraded to use the Semantic MediaWiki (SMW) suite of extensions, though as of July 2018, SMW has been deleted. Wikitech also contains the merged-in the content of the defunct former Wikimedia Labs wiki.


The Wikimedia Foundation, Inc. (WMF), founded 20 June 2003, is the wiki company and non-profit charitable organization responsible for a very large number (over 900 in total) of very active wikis, grouped together and known as 'projects'; as well as the wiki engine software initially developed by themselves, known as MediaWiki. The Foundations' major wiki projects include Wikipedia (encyclopedias), Wiktionary (dictionary and thesaurus), Wikiquote (quotations), Wikibooks (open content textbooks), Wikisource (free content primary and secondary source texts), Wikinews (news source), Wikiversity (open learning community), Wikispecies (free species directory), and many others as listed below. Most of these projects have separate wiki versions written in many different languages. There is also the Wikimedia Commons (shared repository for documents, images, videos, and other media files), Wikidata (central space knowledge base for data used on all WMF projects), and the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki (coordination of issues common to all Wikimedia projects). The Foundations' global reach is nurtured in its Incubator, where all new language versions for all projects are initiated and developed before being rolled out. Its most recent major project, Wikivoyage (a 'travelpedia'), was inducted to WMF in late 2012.

Wikimedia Foundation, Inc. is a member of the Open Source Initiative.
