They know about it because of
[[Template:Bulletin/News]] on Simple. As
far as I can see the place(s) that this is transcuded are the only
places. The question however is how does a Simple WP editor who never
normally goes to meta know that s/he has to credential themselves before
they can !vote on this proposal? I fail to see how they can easily. Yes,
it is on meta somewhere but how would they get to read that? The whole
process is not really open to them.
It was also announced on Simple talk, the Wikipedia's community page; if an
editor does not know that it is usually required to provide a link to a home
wiki, they can be asked to provide a link. It's not a problem. I don't know
where you get the idea that the process isn't open.
