Yes, absolutely... I met Seb Chan at the CCau "Building an
Australasian Commons" conference in late June and he flagged this as a
totally needed thing. I raised it on commons-l
but it didn't go too far. I also met Erik Zachte at Wikimania and
mentioned it to him them (he is the stats guru, but at that time he
had only just been hired, and probably forgot everything everyone ever
said to him, so I should have followed up better).

I know of other institutions who want this too. So we need to impress
this on some dev-types a little bit. Starting with Erik I guess.

As for corporate members, we actually took that allowance out of our
rules IIRC, but it could be something we could amend at the AGM

Thanks for the update Peter!


They've just been waiting in a mountain for the right moment:
