Although our planning in '15 had a different structure, for me was very
useful have a one-two hour recap with Ed after Wikimania 2014, because at
that point he had a more clear image of what functioned and what not, and I
understood his planning into several areas.
I'm agree with Nick, all these plans and models should be present into the

So in general there's not enough communication between Wikimania
for things like this. Why don't we organize
some sort of Brain Trust with
former organizers to give opinions and advice **in a timely manner** to
whoever is the current organizing team? It can be a really easy setup
nothing more than a small mailing list and/or
skype chat) where the
team can ask "Hey, X: you dealt with this
before. How did you do it?" Any
former organizer who is interested can just throw their name in the hat
his/her area of expertise and that's it. Even
more, since the proposed
is just an advisory team (meaning that the
current organizers don't
necessarily have to act upon the advise in the exact described way) this
communication can even become private and informal.
I think something like this is needed to improve future Wikimanias
compromising on those small things that make it a
non-generic event. If
can manage a solution like this, sign me up.
Sounds like a good idea, as long as the answers that ought to be
recorded for posterity are added at
and subpages, which
should be the primary set of opinions and advice and checklists.
