This mailing list can, for example, be used for:

  • Organizational issues of the Wikimedia Foundation, chapter organizations, others
  • Discussing the setup of local Wikimedia chapters
  • Developing and evaluating grant-making programs
  • Planning elections, polls and votes
  • Discussion of projects that don't already have a mailing list
  • Finding ways to raise funds
  • Other Wikimedia-related issues

This is a high traffic mailing list. The list is moderated, and is publicly archived. Participants are asked to remain civil and stay on topic. There is a soft post limit of 30 posts per individual/month.
