There has been a small amount of discussion of a vaguely-defined, hypothetical split, which has involved only a handful of people. The idea has not been tested with the wider community, much less developed as a formal proposal. That's not a good basis on which to appoint an ED. -- Andy Mabbett @pigsonthewing http://pigsonthewing.org.uk _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines New messages to: Wikimediafirstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
