Hello all,

As the 2021 WMF Board elections have been announced, I have proposed to reconsider the eligibility criteria for “developers” and technical contributors, as the previous criteria do not make sense any longer and exclude several groups of contributors.

A discussion has been started at https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T281977 and https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Wikimedia_Foundation_elections/2021#Reconsideration_of_eligibility_criteria_for_technical_contributions_in_election.

Please share your thoughts and feedback.
