In either case, the effort needed for the Wikimedia

involved in any substantial kind of political activity would add
considerable complexity to financial and accounting matters. I'm not
sure if our financial procedures are in a state to support this kind of
change, although certainly they need to get there, regardless of how
politically active we become. However, the Foundation's mission as I
understand it is education and the dissemination of information, and I
think any political activity should be incidental to that mission.
Thank you Michael for all these details.
I suppose that any decision in the sense of changing the goals of the
Foundation itself and the tax category it belongs to in the USA would probably
impact the goals and very likely the tax categories of all the local
associations as well.
Perhaps can Aurevilly tell us more about this the possible legal implications
he can think of ?
