Actually, we have discussed and voted on them in April (minutes are in the

We felt the need to make some amendments soon, but they are not written in
stone - I anticipate that, depending on needs, we may enter a process of
reviewing them in a wider process.

We have not discussed this yet, but I will bring this proposal up at
Wikimania latest. Every organization occasionally can make good use of
governance review and consultation. It would be important to choose a good
advising organization (experienced in NGOs, as well as optimally in large
social movements and open source organizations). Speaking just for myself
and expressing my own opinion only, I think that the Board is quite open to
improvements, and the time for external suggestions is usally best exactly
after the body itself has done as much as it could on their own.
