The Press review

La Quadrature has a revolutionary tool for maintaining its press review.

The press review system stores links to articles on La Quadrature. It is divided into two sections:

Note : Articles in other languages are listed on both pages.

Sign up to the mailing list Press to participate in the task of grouping related links related to causes focused on by La Quadrature.

Items to be added to the system must meet a number of criteria[edit]

  • It must address issues in which La Quadrature is committed, for example:Telecom Package, Hadopi, "Three strikes", Graduated Response, Project Olivennes, Internet Filtering, etc..
  • 'It must reflect the opinion or support La Quadrature and / or quote, talk about La Quadrature.'
  • It must come from a major news organization, regional news organization (Ouest-France), national news organization (Le Monde, 20 minutes, tf1) or international news organization (International Herald Tribune, New York Times, Times of London).

Note : Articles from sources such as PCINpact or Numerama should be included only if include a scoop or new information, they can also be included if they feature a campaign launched by La Quadrature

  • Items must be recent, and of importance to the media, and if the article is urgent include "inclus rapidement". (include soon)

We don't publish articles that ...[edit]

  • are not related to topics that La Quadrature is committed to.
  • link to the main website's landing page. Links should be a permalink directly to an article, not an entire website.
  • are link aggregators or blogspam sites. (such as Netvibes or urlfan). Find the original source of the article and link to that site instead.
  • are from sites no one has heard of. Use good judgement here and link to sites that are established as credible sources for news.

Steps to the inclusion of an article[edit]

The integration of an article in the Press review is done in three steps.

Adding to the queue[edit]

Adding an article to the queue is done in two ways:

  • Google Alerts are automatically added to the queue that match our keywords.
  • In the IRC channel, users can add a link to the press review queue by typing !rp followed by the URL you wish to be added.

Note : Don't forget to add only URLs that haven't already been added so that the same link isn't in the press review twice.

  • You can use "!rpc" to check if an article has already been added to the system. Usage: !rpc <link> (without < >)
  • You can also use "!rpp"
  • A combination of both: "!rpcp"
  • It is also possible to add an "a" at the end of the command to archive an article, in the case where we want to keep the article, but not publish it. usage: !rpa, !rppa, !rpca and !rpcpa.

Les URL sont alors prises en charge par Wantzel ( c'est un bot, si vous ne le voyez pas vous répondre c'est qu'il y a un soucis quelque part ) qui les stocke dans l'outil RP. URL commands are processed by Wantzel (it's a bot, if you do not see a response by the bot, there might be a problem with the command or an issue with the bot.), and the bot adds the links to the press review system.

The submission of articles in the press review is open to everyone, but it is necessary to be careful when proposing articles to be added. Any url submitted wrongly wastes time for people who work on the system. If you are in doubt ask in the channel before submitting an URL.

Article selection to be published[edit]

Presentation tool /rp[edit]

L' Outil /rp

Articles indexed possess various characteristics (including icons) with the following meaning (from left to right in the image above):

  • The article's number in the press review (not very useful, but allows you to navigate between users of the tool, in the press review channel when we publish it avoids many of the same url addresses)
  • The date the article was added to the press review (the date it was submitted)
  • View the original article. A link under will take you to the original site.
  • Publish article in Drupal. (details below)
  • The URL of the article. If you click it, you'll see the text version of the article + an automatic screen capture of the site. All of this is automatic and keeps a historical copy and a copy of the index.
  • The Published flag when at zero points will have no thumb. The flag will be green when it has 3 or more points, and will be red when it is flagged as "not to publish"
  • If i thas the "cite us" flag and no thumb, it will either be turned into a green thumb if the article cites La Quadrature, or a red thumb if it does not.

  • If the item has already been referenced by a node in drupal on La Quadrature, there will be two other icons:
    • Edit this article in drupal (edit icon) see below how it can be accessed.
    • See tthis article in drupal (blue engine icon).
  • finally, where the article came from. If IRC you'll see IRC and the nickname. If from Google, you'll see which alert phrase triggered the link to be added.

How to mark items[edit]

The purpose of the Press review is to first mark items as "to publish" or "do not publish" as well as "we are quoted" or "we are not quoted".

General presentation tool /rp

To do this, you can use the filtering engine (tabs where there are arrows) that allows us to see only certain items:

Filtrage par non traité

This allows us to filter

Note : You will notice that the items which are scored "2" are not interesting enough to publish.

We mark "to publish" (or we click on the small thumb on the right to raise to 3 points) articles which are:

  • issued in big media (mainstream media) AND in the correct subjets or...
  • articles that quote La Quadrature or
  • who speak intelligently on the subjects of La Quadrature and is original content.

We mark "do not publish" articles that:

  • Things that are irrelevant to La Quadrature
  • Are a link to a main website, instead of a permalink to a specific article.
  • blogspam sites or link aggregators or sites that only quote La Quadrature

When in doubt, don't mark an article at all. Just let someone else handle it.

We mark "nous cite" (we're quoted) in any articles that quote La Quadrature. These articles are given priority because they are press *about us*.


The choice of the publication of an article is based on its notes.

Note Legend
<-3 A note judged to be sufficient and relevant
-2 Archive
-1 Where we stopped to note
0 IRC Bot
1-2 Evaluated but replaced by another, or forgotten
3 Draft?
4 To publish
5 To publish urgently
>5 marked as urgent
42 acknowledge as urgent

Any score greater than or equal to 3 activates the "send the item in drupal" button.

Choice of tags[edit]

In principle, try to put some tags to ensure that an item is attached to a single file (eg ACTA, Net filtering, Net Neutrality, IPRED Directive for tags that match a file ). Avoid, for example, putting articles in more than one file, such as in both the "ACTA" folder and "Net Neutrality" folder.

To help you, here are quick definitions of the most useful tags to allow you to categorize the best articles from the press review:

Tag fr Tag en Definition
CETA CETA The Canada-EU trade agreement and content dossier related to it (content relating to copyright law, patent and trademark rights internationally) fall into this category. (For example, the commercial trade negotiations of d'ACTA/CETA/**TA.
ACTA ACTA Content related to the accord of commercial anti-counterfitting (ACTA) and others related. dossier
IPRED IPRED European Directive on the content of the application of intellectual property or of related documents. The content related to the SOPA Act ​​(which has its own tag) or other non-European initiatives to increase repression of sharing culture on the Internet can fall into this category: Filtering streaming sites or bitorrent trackers, measures imposed on payment services, etc.. These subjects are similar to those tagged "CETA" but they fit either in a national or at the European level.
Neutralité du Net Net Neutrality Content related to the debate over net neutrality and of related documents. Here we must focus on the practices in use by telecom operators, the political debates to protect net neutrality neutrality (and thus exclude, for example, filtering measures against websites imposed by the government).
Spectre radio et fréquences Radio spectrum Content related to the political commentary related to governing/selling/etc of the radio spectrum/frequencies, and more generally, mobile communications (These are topics related to net neutrality)
Filtrage du Net Net filtering Content related to blocking measures of internet sites and other censorship measures. (as well as DNS) et other related documents. Generally speaking, when these measures relate to copyright, we prefer these go to the "IPRED" folder.
Directive services en ligne Online Services Directive Content related to the online services directive. (« eCommerce ») or other related documents fall into this category. Discussions related to the legal liability of technical intermediaries (hosting, search engines, etc.): filtering content posted, withdrawal requests of content ("notice-and-takedowns in English, DHS takedowns, etc)
liberté d'expression free speech Directly involves the law relating to freedom of expression, freedom of the press, etc..(ex : WikiLeaks, Copwatch, etc).
Propositions Proposals Content on proposals human freedoms on the Internet and other propositions brought by La Quadrature. The news for this category should include propositional elements indicating what should be done at the policy and legislative level to protect online freedoms.
Contribution créative Creative contribution On the proposals by Philippe Aigrain to create a shared funding for the creative works in the digital era (also add the "Proposals" tag) content.
Financement mutualisé crowd-funding Other propositions of crowd funding such as "global license" (also add the tag "Proposals").
Surveillance & vie privée Surveillance & private life Address constraints and digital threats to citizens' privacy: DPI anonymity, logs, accessing of passwords ...

Publication on the website[edit]

The form capture of an article on the website

Once we have a list of articles to be published (the advantage of the system is that it can be done by another person ...) you can then publish on Drupal.

For this, we must first be 'CONNECTED (this is important, 'MUST be connected) on the drupal account and the account of the quadrature drupal should have the right to create / edit the articles in the press review. You can use the filtering engine ('Show by published status and Show by citing status) to display only items to publish even for those that start with 'quote us (where we are quoted).

Then take one of the articles to be published, which has nothing in its "node" column (which means that it has not already been published) and click on the disk.

After confirmation, we are presented with the form (usually) published in Drupal.

The press review tool normally does most of the work, but don't rely on it to fix your mistakes. You must carefully edit the articles before putting them online:

In the Drupal editor (Click on the blue thing) , you must make the following choices:

  • 1 - Verify the title. It must be of the form [NomDuMedia] Title of the article For Example: [LeFigaro] Piracy : Viviane Reding challenges Sarkozy
  • 2 - Choose the language  : Put "Français" for articles in French, or "Anglais" for articles in English and the default option for other languages. The language should be set regardless of language.
  • 3 - put the correct subnet of the article
  • 4 - Check Quotes La Quadrature and/or Talks about La Quadrature if it applies.
  • 5 - URL Path parameters , check automatic alias.
  • 6 - Publication Information Inform your memory, add the publication date, with date and time of the Article
  • 7 - Then check the article contents. They should have:
    • a completed self-style image tag
    • A short extract relevant to the article. Usually 1 or two paragraphs, or 3 if it is really important. If necessary put [...] to make an ellipse, and put the citations in italics (<i>"citation"</i>), quotes by or about La Quadrature in italics and in bold (<i><b>"Quoted passage by La Quadrature here"</b></i>), and put the name La Quadrature in italics (<i>passage qui parle de la Quadrature</i>) and the name of the person who spoke should be in italics.
    • Link to the original url. It is set automatically by RP on the last line / do not forget to leave it there, it is honest and it is still the source of the RP!
  • 8 - Publication option : Then verify the date of publication, in the area named publication information. Fields 'Writes the should ideally be filled by putting the date of publication of the original paper you reference. Let the date format be the ISO standard otherwise it will not pass, eg '2008-09-26 9:45:53 p.m. +0000
  • 9 - finally, click on aperçu to verify your draft.
  • 10 - If everything looks good, you can then publish the article and voila! =)

NOTE: Sometimes there are items that are forums that La Quadrature should not hesitate to pin the top of the list for the item to be included in the "Select" column. Use these in moderation.

  • If after registration of your draft you'll be presented with an access denied but you still want to edit what you have to do, just add at the end of the url "/ edit".

Voilà (there!) your press review is now online!

It may take up to 10 minutes later for the drupal node to appear and be associated in the press review, with the icon "modifiy" and "download". If not, the URL for modifying directly is in the form of: and an edit tab is available within Drupal.


Globalement, le moteur de site utilisé est Drupal, cela veut dire que de base les fonctionnalités par défaut de ce moteurs sont utilisées. C'est notamment le cas pour la gestion des brouillons.

Lorsqu'un article est créé, enregistré, mais pas publié, il atterri dans les brouillons. Exactement comme les brouillons d'une boîte à lettre électronique.

Pour retrouver ces brouillons, il possible de naviguer un peu dans l'interface d'administration d'un site Drupal de base disponible dans Mais pour simplifier la vie de tout le monde, l'adresse est également disponible.

Liste de choses à vérifier avant de publier un article[edit]

  1. le nom du journal doit débuter le titre, entre crochets, sans extensions DNS à la fin, mais avec la casse la plus lisible possible [] -> [PCINpact] ou [LeMonde] ou [Ecrans]
  2. le titre doit être celui de l'article, sans entité HTML dedans
  3. les tags doivent avoir été renseignés
  4. vérifier que l'article nous cite et/ou parle de nous et sélectionner les entrées correspondantes (CTRL+F 'quadrature' sur l'article, et CTRL+Clic sur la liste)
  5. relire son court extrait de 10 lignes de l'article original, qui doit donner envie de lire l'article en entier. Est-ce que les balises HTML sont bien imbriquées ? (<b> gras, <i> italique, etc ...) Facilement vérifié lorsqu'on génère un aperçu.
  6. est-ce que la langue correspond ? (français, anglais, neutre) ('neutre' veux dire : pour tout le monde / dans les deux revues de presse)
  7. dans le volet "Informations de publication" : mettre son numéro de neurone
  8. et la date et l'heure de publication de l'article original (si ces infos n'apparaîssent pas sur la page de l'article, voir dans les flux RSS du site, s'aider des commentaires, ou encore de la date d'entrée dans l'outil /rp en désespoir de cause)
  9. vérifier que l'option "Automatic alias", située dans le volet "Paramètres du chemin d'URL" soit bien cochée
  10. tout est bon ? Cliquer sur "Aperçu", reparcourir l'article, cocher la case "publier" et cliquer sur "Enregistrer" !
