Tricky issue here.
I have discussed it a bit on the polish irc channel.
I am not entirely sure what had been decided regarding passes on the
And there is the issue of the editor in chief, which might be tricky.
Could we discuss this together ?

Subject: Polish Wikinews - Press passes for Polish Wikireporters and other
Date: 2006-03-29 15:40:28
The Polish local chapter, Wikimedia Polska, would like to give out
press passes for the users of the Polish Wikinews project. For that,
we're working on specific regulations towards who could get such a
pass, and how would our Association be associated with them.
The Polish law doesn't explain how a press pass should look, and what
information should be on it, but we want to include the following:
- The Wikinews logo, along with the Wikinews name and preferably with
a subtitle "Polska"
- Information that this person is a reporter of Wikinews Polska
- Contact info towards someone from Wikimedia Polska, who could give
out accreditations and take phone calls from any institutions, if
there would be any
We plan to cover the costs of printing press passes and personal
cards. We need permission from the Foundation (preferably signed by
the Board) faxed to our fax number for the following:
- Usage of the name and logo
- Delegating a person from our Association who would work as an editor in
This is a bit tricky - we're aware that no one should be called an
editor in chief, so one of our bureaucrats (either me or someone else
who would be elected) could stand for this position.
It is possible, that we could register Wikinews Polska as a company in
Poland in the future, but that'd be another topic to discuss (and not
really that necessary yet). For now, we'd like to discuss our
cooperation with the Foundation on the usage of the Wikinews logo and
name and the delegation of someone standing as editor in chief.
That's all from me. Best regards,
Executive Secretary of Wikimedia Poland
