Dear all,

A small group of long-time Wikimaniacs have been working on the
perrenial plan to produce a "Wikimania Committee" - a community group
who would help steer Wikimania from year to year, advising each local
hosting team and ensuring that the processes are open, transparent and

Here are our drafts of what we think we'd want the committee to be
like, a charter, and the resolution which we're submitting to the WMF Board:

Hi folks,

All this discussion is great, but I just want to remind you to leave any last comments on the proposal for a wikimania committee above if you have them. So far there has only been a small amount of discussion on the charter about staggered terms, which I tried to incorporate. It seems like most of the discussion that's happening now is about the structure of Wikimania which is bigger than the proposal to create an oversight committee?

I think it would be good to try and get this proposal wrapped up fairly soon and sent off to the Board for their consideration, so if you do have any specific comments on the charter proposal or the resolution please do leave them on the talk page.
