It appears to me from my surface-level review that there are some long-term finance and governance troubles at the main CC org. Now seems like a good time for WMF and other relevant orgs to develop a contingency plan in case the main CC org continues to have problems or ceases to be functional. I hope that the CC chapers have contingency plans, and I hope that we on this list will hear directly from WMF Legal that they are watching this situation carefully and are making appropriate plans based on what they learn.
