Not responding to the particulars of the discussion below, but still on the topic
expressed in the header above, I would like to know if the minutes of the board meeting in
which the trustees voted to dismiss the executive director Lila Tretikov will be
I did look for them (https://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Minutes
) but these minutes (if
they exist) are not currently there.
Jimbo responded to arbitrator GorillaWarfare on this list, basically, "yes, I
supported with sadness the decision to dismiss Lila." I am interested a little
further. I would like to know if Jimbo not only supported but *introduced* the motion to
dismiss Lila. If not him, okay, but then whom?
Thank you. I'd like to review some minutes but would also be pleased to hear the
comment of any trustee that was there. Jimbo has already revealed his vote, so it
doesn't seem like another trustee should be criticized for violating any confidence,
after all Wikimedia prides itself on transparency.

Are we still waiting for Jimmy to agree/reject to
James' request to
release an email?
Yes. Jimmy said on 28 February that he wanted to speak to others about
whether it was okay to release his 30 December 2015 email to James. 
There's also the question of releasing the more recent email he sent to
James and cc-ed to Pete.
James has said nothing needs to be kept confidential for his sake. 
Jimmy, could you please treat this request with the absolute highest
priority. It has gone on too long.
If some parts must be redacted because you cant get agreement from
other parties, then so be it -- just tell us why (broadly) some part
As far as I am aware, we are still waiting for an answer from Jimmy here.
The same applies to the question Sarah posed here and others repeated
There is a very understandable sense of fatigue that sets in when things
drag out like this. Everybody gets tired of the topic after a while. But I
submit that there is a systemic issue here that has blighted communication
in this movement for long enough.
