Yes and no. Considering that I've been waiting for months for answers to questions about the WMF Annual Plan, I would say that there is much room for improvement in communications.
On the other hand, the WMF Comms department itself seems to more or less ok, and I personally think we'll of WMF's chief communications officer. So, some good points, and some room to improve. I agree that the status quo has been this way for awhile and it would be good to see across-the-board communications SLAs.
