Nobody I know of is saying that we should not have it Anthere. I, for example,
want a general solution by having this on the Commons. 

Wikispecies would then be a Wikimedia Commons data project; along with Wikiwar,
Wikichemistry, and anything else that would benefit from Commons technology. 

I still strongly feel the board way overstepped its authority by authorizing
this when there was far from a consensus to proceed. 

The concerns should have be addressed first in order *try* to find a mutually
acceptable solution. I did not see a good effort to do that. 

Leadership by fiat is no leadership at all.
