Excuse me, can you clarify?
How does [[User:Jimbo Wales]] "retain the power to dictate policy"?
Retention requires that you already have the power. When did [[User:Jimbo
Wales]] obtain the power to dictate policy "where he deems necessary"?
I understand that someone in the Wikimedia Foundation can dictate policy in
exceptional cases where that is required, but I do not understand how the
Wikimedia Foundation is organised.
This has been our traditional community policy everywhere in all
projects. It is not used much, and certainly has not been used in the
case of Wikibooks.
