Okay. And sure you know how to get in contact with the whole
community? Because people tend to complain about not being informed,
although they just didn't read the relevant threads on foundation-l.
Should we make a notice on every little village pump (it will be
really cheap and easy to translate such a thing in every possible
language to allow non-english-speakers to participate)? Or shall we
send an email to every registered Wikimedia user (see translation
issue above)? Or do you know another way how *everybody* feels
included, asked and considered?
