[Wikimedia-l] Should we lock StrategyWiki?

It seems to me that there was a period in the WMF history when it was
"popular" to install new wikis, for strategy or outreach, instead of
using Meta. I don't see the advantages of having seperate wikis, or
disadvantages of Meta. Meta has always been the platform for the whole
movement, not only the wiki content websites. By the way, the WCA
decided not to have a wiki of its own but to use Meta.
Kind regards
