Me and a friend are going on a photography spree around Sydney tomorrow so
if there's anything that anyone would like a photo of for Wikipedia, let me
know asap =)
And I wish you all a happy new year!

Subject: [Foundation-l] Agreement between local chapters and Foundation
To: Wikimedia Foundation <foundation-l(a)wikimedia.org>, "Local
Chapters, board and officers coordination (closed subscription)"
The resolution concerning the agreement between local chapters and WMF
may be found here:
More interesting is the agreement itself:
The agreement proper was essentially drafted by the local chapters
coordinator, Delphine Ménard, the UK chapter, Alison Wheeler and our GC,
That's a good step !
A few comments
* http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Local_chapters needs update
**for example, it still refers to Serbian chapter as S&M chapter
**<small>and the UK chapter is not mentionned</small>
* At the board retreat, guidelines for chapter creation were drafted,
but the draft was never finalized. The board agreed to have the
guidelines validated asap, but can not do it until the guidelines are
actually put down on paper (well, wiki). So, there are still no
guidelines for creation. Can the chapter committee give us a date when
the guidelines will be ready ?
* There is still pending an agreement for commercial use of the
trademarks by the chapters. Let us be realistic, it should not be
expected before a while, because commercial use of the trademarks in
general first need to be analysed and assessed. Let's talk about it in a
couple of months when the work on trademarks themselves is basically done.
