I think that given how far in advance WMF Board meetings are planned, it
should be possible to know the agenda and have the materials available for

First of all: kudos to Stephen for getting the agenda more or less

compared to the past.
Of course any advance time would be helpful - but only if the board would
actually appreciate input. I believe the meeting schedule is
I think the first step in this direction is for the Board to decide whether
or not they wish to engage with the Community in this way – whether they
have the time, energy and bandwidth to handle such communications, and
whether they see the reward as commensurate with the investment. So
Can board agendas, as well as slides and docs which are not security or
privacy sensitive, be published 2 weeks in advance of meetings, please?
This will allow community members to provide comments and ask questions

Determining the intent of a particular search is indeed very difficult, and
is not really feasible to even attempt it at the scale needed for machine
learning (unless you have an immense budget like some for-profit search
For our machine learning training data, we use
Thanks for your very detailed reply. I have a followup question.
How do you determine search intents? For example, if you see someone
searching for "rents" how do you know whether they are looking for
economic or property rents when evaluating the quality of the search
