I can assist you if you need.

However, it seems to me that this mailing list is (almost) dead (correct me if I am wrong).

So voting announcements via mailing list go nowhere.

Hi all,

The voting period is now open.
Do we want to want to vote as a group? (I'm a bit concerned no-one even aswered my previous email :/ ) and if so, how should we procede? I was thinking about an internal vote, and take the results but I fear there will be too few votes to be representative of the group. I need you, we and you need you!
So the big question is: should I launch the internal vote and is anyone interrested? (for obvious reasons, it would be good that someone assist me to make sure everything is going fine).

For information, there is 12 candidates (listed with statements on https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Affiliate-selected_Board_seats/2019/Nominations, including the two seats whose terms have expired) and as remarked, none « mentioned Wikisource specifically in their candidate statement » (source: https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Wikisource:News/2019-05 ).

Hi all,

As you may know, the election of the Affiliate-selected Board seats (ASBS) has begun.
We, as the Wikisource Community User Group, can take part in this election and elected two person to the Board of Trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation.
The meta page https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Affiliate-selected_Board_seats/2019 give some lengthy informations, here is a quick summary:
- since April 15 and until April 30, people will candidate to seat at the board, at this step we can ask question to candidates and *endorse* two candidates.
- between May 8 and May 31, we can vote.

For this whole process, I am the primary contact but we *all* make the decision, I'm merely the messenger of the group here.

Here is how I suggest to proceed:
- right now, write together questions and criteria for candidate we want to endorse (WMNL shared this table to help https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Assessing_candidates_for_the_Affiliate-selected_Board_seats_of_the_Board_of_Trustees.pdf but it's very general, we should adapt it to this usergroup needs ; here is copy of this table https://lite.framacalc.org/asbs2019-wcug we can work on). You can also ask question in your own name.
- in May, we vote for the candidates inside the user group (not sure how to best handle this part, I would prefer it to be public but we can do it in private too) and then, I will take the results and vote in the name of the user group.
- is anyone interested to be the secondary contact? (I'm a bit busy so I could use some help ;) )
- if you feel the need, we can do an online meeting to talk about it, but as we are scattered all around the globe, finding a good timeslot is challenging. Would anyone be interested? (or is this mailing list enough?)
- obviously, any question, idea, remark, suggestion are welcome!
