I'm tempted to sit this one out. The Foundation has organized a bunch of
working groups, staffed primarily through volunteers of various types, to
present some strategic recommendations for moving forward into the future.
We are a movement with flaws and opportunities for improvement, as with any
large organization, and it would be a mistake for us to assume that because
we found the winning formula in the early 2000s we are completely set for
the future. But already, the discussions on Meta are dominated by
representatives of The Community™ showing up with all of the usual toxic
vested contributor behaviour that I've grown to know and love in my time
with this movement.

That said, it is apparent how broken the community/WMF governance model is.
Large portions of the community feel disenfranchised on the projects they
helped to create, and the WMF is increasingly separate from the community
in terms of its goals and priorities. I think that re-imagining the
governance of this movement is going to be the first step towards making
any sort of progress towards the goals of either group.
