As you know that I'm responsible for the spreadsheet that your bot is copying to make
that spreadsheet (since you're one of the ones who asked me to make the process more
transparent) I would have really appreciated a more private email before this public one.
That said, yes there have both been some changes on the private versions of the sheet that
caused the public version to break as well as very few actual rights changes which means I
haven't been looking at it often. Because of a back log of issues within my Trust and
Safety work I haven't been able to fully find the time to fix and update everything
but I actually have time set aside on my calendar on Monday to do that :).

Thanks for your commitment to get this up to date.
Had my question been about the performance of a named employee, I
would have sent a private email out of courtesy. This was a simple
non-critical question about WMF transparency, following on from an
original open discussion a long time ago on this list. This makes this
list the best open place to raise the question.
I feel that it is ethical to all encourage volunteers to feel free to
ask questions about WMF transparency in the open. It would be a
positive and ethical approach to take. Making it appear that a
volunteer has done something wrong when they try to do so is not a
healthy direction to go in.
