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 published.
I did look for them (https://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Minutes
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.
I think they already have been - by Patricio's email and public posting
stating that Lila tendered her resignation and the Board accepted it. It
doesn't matter who makes the motion to accept the resignation, since the
Board would have to debate it regardless; for motions like this, the
identity of the mover is more process than substance.
The rest of the discussion would be a human resources matter which I
certainly hope was not recorded, or if it was, that it would ever be
published. I cannot imagine that anyone on this list would seriously
believe that personal performance appraisals should be published. It would
probably violate quite a few labour and human rights laws, not to mention
the separation agreement that no doubt exists. That's not transparency,
