The pronouncement of Fri Aug 19 12:36:01 UTC 2016 states "the Board of Trustees has instructed the Affiliations Committee to provisionally use these three new criteria for all new applicants" and as a consequence the Board Chair has stated, on Tue Aug 23 06:46:47 UTC 2016, "This is not a discussion". In the interests of transparency, please could the Community be informed of the text of the Board Resolution that laid down these criteria?
The Board chair has also informed us (on Tue Aug 23 12:34:37 UTC 2016) that *"*Everything is a discussion" and "our main goal for this year is to make sure we finally have a comprehensive movement strategy". This is of course excellent news, especially since dialogue between the Board and the Community on these issues has been conspicuous by its absence [ https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Foundation_Board_noticeboard/Archives/2016#Deep_strategy]. Exactly how and where will this engagement take place? Perhaps https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IdeaLab/Strategy_Alpha might be a place to plan the mechanisms for that engagement?
