Thank you. This actually worries me a lot. If I read it correctly, we will get a kind of Wiki-Resident, but not with a cultural and educational institution but with the local government of one of the most populous and influential subjects of the Russian Federation. I do not think we previously

OTRS has always seemed modeled after our wikis; self-selecting, self-perpetuating, self-governing... Often inconsistent, and always opaque to outsiders. There was a time when this was regarded as a feature. As other functions have become more transparent and accountable, OTRS has kept a low

Hello, This is the first time that I heard that the rules and policies of a volunteer body are confidential. As a CU and OS we don't have any confidential policy (confidential data, sure) Can you elaborate more? On Mon, Jul 6, 2020 at 7:52 PM Jonatan Svensson Glad < gladjona...@outlook.com>

OTRS is an important part of our activity, and is akey interface between our volunteers and key partner institutions, as well as (often notable) individuals. By its very nature, much of what OTRS agents do cannot be as transparent as the rest of our activities, being rightly held as confidential.
