The members represent the community in general. It's a good idea to
have representatives from many different projects, cultures, and
languages, but the proposal says Durova considers en-Wikipedia and
Commons her home wikis-- not that she's an official ambassador from
those wikis.

So if you consider her to be an excellent Wikimedian overall,
regardless of a dispute on one wiki, there's no problem after all. :)

Yours cordially,
Jesse Plamondon-Willard (Pathoschild)
