If the Wikimedia Foundations needs chapters that can act and will act, you
do not want chapters that act only like societies. If you truly want active
and responsible organisations you have to be clear about this need and
assess the performance of chapters accordingly. I completely agree that each
organisation is independent in what it does however the status of chapter
should relate to its function. When a society does not perform as a chapter,
you can still have good relations with them but should they have a claim to
the title of chapter ???
Yes Gerard you are completely right. I was just going to answer your
other mail. This is the reason why we check the bylaws, to see that they
are in accordance with the goal and vision of the fundation.
