Hi all,

I'm thrilled to announce that Maggie Dennis, our community liaison, has
agreed to transition to a permanent role with the Wikimedia Foundation.

You may recall that Maggie was hired on a temporary contract, with the idea
of rotating through community liaisons.  We still intend to hire another
community liaison - in fact, her work has proven the value of the program
to such an extent that we'll be expanding it - but Maggie will stay on to
provide continuity.

Maggie has been a godsend to me... she's a fount of knowledge, and
incredibly hard working.  Most importantly, she is able to fluently speak
"Philippe" and translate that to "real-people talk".  As
User:Moonriddengirl, she is the maven of copyright for English Wikipedia,
and has well over 100,000 edits.  In short, she's a rock star.

Maggie will continue to report to me.
