Dear friends, Pine wrote "The idea of WMF placing itself in the position of managing community development is problematic." I disagree with Pine. It has been recognized in the past that community is the key asset in the movement. I do belief that it is a fiduciary duty to manage your key asset wisely and responsively. Editing / contributing to Wikimedia projects has a radically decentralized nature. Your concern regards paying due respect to that radically decentralized nature. Community health has been or is an issue for example. I am very glad there is going to be a person leading a team of professionals to provide guidance to volunteer leaders. And the person will have a challenge to gain trust of the community, and to build trust within the communities.
