I hope you are keeping well during these strange, and seemingly
As I'm sure some of you will have already seen, the Wikimedia Foundation
has published a call for feedback about the process for promoting and
choosing community candidates for their board of trustees:
There are several ways to participate in the call, as follows:
- Discuss in the Talk page for each idea, or in this talk page
- Discuss in the Telegram group chat <https://t.me/wmboardgovernancechat>
created for this call for feedback
- Join a conversation or an online meeting
I'm emailing you all firstly to make sure that you are all aware of the
call for feedback, but secondly to gauge the level of interest in
organising an online call about this, either at a UK or English Wikipedia
level (or indeed, for another relevant community). If you would personally
be interested in attending such a meeting, please do let me know.
Otherwise, I would encourage those of you with ideas about this to
contribute to one of the channels outlined above.
With best wishes
