The proposal for the Wikimedia Movement to take on a travel site continues
to develop. The site WikiVoyage www.wikivoyage.com at their last board
meeting has agreed in principle to join a WMF run site. This will mean that
the WM movement has the potential ability to bring two communities of
editors back together, those of WikiVoyage and those of Wikitravel.

The full proposal is here http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Travel_Guide which
we hope to present to the WMF board the day before Wikimania in Washington.
The outcome of the boards decision will than be announced at Wikimania. We
are also planning on having an informal get together of all those
interested in travel content during lunch on July 12th at Wikimania (13:00
to 14:00).
