(Quick comment - cannot engage in the discussion now)

Fae, thanks for moving this page! I agree with this.

Sarah, I'll be using OKFN wiki, which I've been using since 2011, for
organize the bylaw, board and advisory board. Let's discuss this on
the OKFN channels later, it's a pity I could not go to Cambridge this
year to strongly oppose that. I don't think we (OKFN) should have an
internal wiki (!) and/or close it.

If OKFN stops using its wiki or closes it (I hope we don't!), we
should move the page I started with Kat to meta.
