I think it is a good idea to have a sort of community council. To give
credit, Guy Kawasaki just recently proposed something along these lines in
internal discussions. My first take is that it would be good to have some
representation and governance of our movement, not just WMF. It would make
everyone's lives easier, too - it would be easier to consult, seek advise,
etc.

I've been also thinking about revitalizing our Advisory Board - the way I
would like to see it would be dividing it into (a) community (b) tech and
(c) academic subgroups, available for immediate consulting and feedback.

This definitely does not collide with the idea of a community council in
the form that you're proposing, I think. It is worth further discussion.
Should it be continued on meta?
