I dont see how the voting method is particularly relevant to this thread..? It seems this thread is more about governance by post-appointment trustees, who have been properly vetted before being appointed. I dont recall that we've had any serious incidents of the board election outcome being disrupted because we use a voting process that includes non-identified people. -- John Vandenberg _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines New messages to: Wikimediaemail@example.com Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
