A great question. And I have an easy answer!

I wrote up the feedback we received into a report that you can read here:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Foundation_elections/2017/Post_mortem/Report

The committee will be working on taking the feedback onboard ahead of the
next election cycle, which is (at the time of writing) the FDC elections in
2019.

Let me know if you have any questions about the report. :)

best,
Joe
