Please participate in the discussion about the "Creation and renewal of
the Committee" section. This is not to approve it yet, just a discussion:
Most of this text has been around for a while, but I made a few changes
to the draft last week, so I wanted to give people an opportunity to
comment, suggest changes, etc.
I'll give it a few more days, then start the formal approval discussion.
Hello volunteer developers & technical contributors!
The Wikimedia Foundation is asking for your feedback in a survey. We want
to know how well we are supporting your contributions on and off wiki, and
how we can change or improve things in the future. The opinions you
share will directly affect the current and future work of the Wikimedia
Foundation. To say thank you for your time, we are giving away 20 Wikimedia
T-shirts to randomly selected people who take the survey. The survey is
available in various languages and will take between 20 and 40 minutes.

for the Articel site I will give you a new and old idea.
On all websites we see menues on top.
But not here .
How can youchange this?
Yes ;-) make a top menue where its wanted and needed.
eg a sub-menu "references"
for all "important short sentences a polititian told us "
sometimes we find somehwere in longt text sites
but not ordered on one site...
the references on bottom are ok, but the main text is mixed with
doing and telling etc....
I think the words and speaches of a person should be on a sub site
and with this order:
"He said that........."
So we get a ordered overview of many things as
I red many articles which are not ordered
in time line.
and mixed in i very wild style....
wanna do this or not ?
you can make this automatically ,
If someone writes it o the main site
there can be a button-option to copy it to the sub site with date and
"ref" and he has not to make a new entry.
tell me your idea.
I can write your sponsors if you want ;-)
Obama , no problem....
In the great scheme of overall progress, we should delete it – together
with all references on mediawiki.org.
Only opposing thought is, that we won't have one public place to refer to
the mediawiki.UI elements (ok, after the current instance isn't running any
more we don't have one right now either). I'm thinking about discussing
changes to align the remaining elments with OOjs UI.
PS: I've also added a comment on the task, we should continue discussion
