Regardless of whether I agreed with the Virgin notice or not, this is
an excellent move on behalf of the Foundation. It demonstrates the
Foundation's responsiveness to Wikimedians and that there is no
bureaucratic disconnect (which is always a worry when a project like
ours begins to organise into formalised institutions and structures).

Thanks Florence and the rest of the team. You're doing an excellent job.
