* Program Evaluation - should be an online committee that organises
itself - very much like it already is, maybe a bit more independant,
similar to the jury
No change needed.
* VISAs and managing scholarships - online committee with WMF staff and
volunteers - should be kind of a secretariat for the Scholarship
It sort of work like this right now. But I think WMF should take up more and follow-up on
Visa should be a local thing.
Simon: I thought it went pretty smoothly this year, and agree about WMF taking up more of
the followup. I want to get your and Jessie's feedback on how we can improve things
for next year.
* Scholarship Evaluation - online committee of volunteers - very much
like it already is, maybe a bit more independant, similar to the jury
No change needed. It is independent from WMF.
Scholarship committee should be just reviewing applicants.
Following up the scholarship program should be handled by WMF (like a chapter).
* Technics - a global team of people which organise online but also need
to work locally a week prior the event
** I'd volunteer for that as I also wrote most of the technical specs on
the Wikimania Team wiki
Would it be possible that WMF helps local team to host Wikimania registration/scholarship
