Congratulations. I look forward to increased openness and a focus on
monitoring the performance of the charity in 2014 to ensure its
effective and efficient operation.

I was under the impression that Alastair McCapra had stood down as
Secretary as decided in the September 2013 board meeting.[1] Could the
situation please be confirmed by the board of trustees?

To clarify the term "long-serving Wikimedia Commons bureaucrat",
Michael had both rights of admin and bureaucrat restored seven months
ago, without a community vote, after retiring in December 2010.[2]
