I agree with Christophe...

I've consistently been asking the Foundation to make sure the FDC is set up
in a transparent way, with involvement from Chapters and other
stakeholders. So it makes perfect sense to me to set up an advisory
committee to help make sure it sets out down the right path over the next
18 months, even if that entails some financial cost and some use of
volunteer time. It's vital to get this right.

(Wikimedia UK board, speaking personally...)
