My question isn't so much when and where, but rather who can vote on 
this proposal.  More to the point, stakeholders in the content of 
Wikimedia sites includes a whole bunch of people who may not necessarily 
fit the criteria that is typical for voting on WMF board members and 
stewards.... myself included.  I haven't exactly been an active 
participant on this mailing list, nor lately on many of the Wikimedia 
projects, but I have contributed a fair amount of content to the 
Wikimedia projects over the years spanning multiple projects.

I certainly think my voice ought to count for something, together with 
other people who are in my position and situation.
