I've found Wikipedia Signpost
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Wikipedia_Signpost) to be an
excellent resource for this sort of news pertaining to Wikipedia.
While it may not have prevented this particular case of
miscommunication, having a "Wikimedia Signpost" of sorts with
significant open communication between its writers and the board,
would probably be extremely helpful. If there is enough interest the
most important articles could even be translated into multiple
Wikipedia Signpost covers a lot of these Wikimedia issues already.
I'm not sure if this issue was adequately covered there, as I just
found out about Wikipedia Signpost recently. In any case, this is
only part of the issue, but I think we all need to admit that there
