Jennifer, I would like to comment on the search and requirement criteria. In particular, I'd like to know whether the Foundation is interested in reinforcing their privacy infrastructure, and whether that is more or less important than being able to provide personally identifiable information to the several researchers worldwide under nondisclosure agreements. And whether some kind of a fuzzing middle ground is interesting to the Foundation? I'd like to know whether the Foundation wants to stay with PHP long term, or explore alternatives before deciding whether they do. What is our technical strategy to combat censorship in Turkey and China? Are we ever going to support IPFS with more than just dumps? What is the status of the Encrypted-SNI project and how many headcount do we think we need and what kind of budget is there for it?
I'd like to know what kind of commitment the Foundation wants to open source hardware, e.g. www.opencompute.org servers, or if we're just going to stay with closed source proprietary technology forever? I'd like to know what the technology goals are. Plenty of Foundation technology projects look like they are close to wrapping up or have already transitioned into support mode. Is the Community Wishlist the sole source of new technology efforts? What is the future of the Tool Labs? Are any of the tools that have fallen into disrepair (e.g., Categorder which sorts the WP:BACKLOG categories by pageviews on enwiki) ever going to be fixed? Is Wikiversity going to get a Course Management System? Is Wiktionary going to get a pronunciation tutor? What is the Foundation looking for in a CTO to address these issues? How are they looking for them? Is there a short list? Will the community get a chance to comment on the candidates? Who is performing the search? What criteria are they using? How much money is being offered? Are we competitive with other top-ten website CTO compensation? Is the Foundation still committed to paying competitive SF-livable salaries for all employees? I would love to know any of this far more than anything about branding.
