They're worries - hypothetical worries in some
cases - but they impact directly on the work
I do and it would be wrong of me to not raise them.
They are worth raising, thank you.
it is a good first approach, but I worry that the
first approach will become
the only approach, and that the results will be used even if they're too
"rough" to use.
An important point. This happens regularly despite the best
intentions of all involved. (And not only at the organizational level
-- e.g., we all still rely on 'edit count' for so many things, despite
persistent vocal attention to its weaknesses and subvertability as a
metric since the start.)
I think that the first version can be improved with a
lot more buy-in from the rest
of the movement :-)
This is likely :) I've added your concerns to the wiki discussion
about the report:
(Also cc:ing the low-traffic treasurers mailing list. I believe some
org treasurers who don't have time to follow all of Wikimedia-l
nevertheless read that list.)
