Alice, Craig did provide an update for only you on meta just a couple of
weeks ago[1]. There has been little to no discussion recently, aside from
whatever the committee has talked about between themselves. In fact, you
would probably know more about the subject of this thread than most of us,
since sebastian is/was your former board member and most of us on Internal
are as surprised as anyone else here. None of us know what progress he has

You would also have to accept that you are/will be part of the WMF board.
You'd have access to less and in some case, more information, but not a lot
besides what people choose to disclose. This interim time between the WMDE
board and WMF board is transitory. So, I would only remind that you be
patient for now, you will not be entitled to any more or less information
than rest of the board, as much as all of us here are entitled to what the
board has or will discuss. And I do recall when the calls were made last to
ask what the board was discussing. Somehow the rest of the board seems to
have subsisted on the available information.
