Do I have to explain it again? What is not clear?
WMI Board didn't know anything about this deal before the begin of
december, and it has been told to "not tell anyone", and they didn't
agree to anything.
But this is not what has been told to me yesterday on #wikimedia.

They are independent organizations. This means "They have no voice".
Then: what about this top-down decision strategy?
How communities can express their opinions about Foundation choose?
Directly? (Oh My God, don't answer "Yes")

And if they have no possibility to partecipate collectively to the
decision about wiki-verse, what is this? "Working without being
allowed to talk" is slavery, as far as I know.
