Congratulations on your new role Tim.
In all noise generated on this list by the bizzare detour into
Wikipediocracy last week, I was surprised that the other major announcement
- about the fundamental changes at WMDE (particularly regarding Pavel
Richter) - were not discussed at all. For such a major announcement it was
almost as if the list had been stunned into silence. I don't think I can
think of another similarly significant event in the Wikiverse that has had
so little response on this, often verbose, mailing list. I have absolutely
no doubt that there are thousands and thousands of words written on
German-language lists, but all I've seen is the WIkipedia Signpost's
I would appreciate if someone could point to good summaries of the issues
that led to this radical change.
Peace, love & metadata
