The Provisional Volunteer Council is rather controversial, so I
suggest taking the essential idea and stripping out the bureaucracy.
An unofficial working group, consisting of a group of interested
Wikimedians, will work efficiently together on hammering out the
details of a Volunteer Council. This group will not submit
recommendations directly to the board, but will present a complete
proposal to the community. Then the discussion on Foundation-l will
more productively concern relatively minor tweaks, rather than
arguments over principles and vague what-ifs.
Will this be less controversial?
