Hello, Sorry that I'm late replying to this thread. I have been very busy in the past few weeks.
I have a proposal that likely will not affect the current round of appointments because implementation would require some time and careful deliberation. This proposal isn't intended as a personal critique. I would like to see the selection process for OC be done by the community with WMF consent, similar to how stewards are appointed. I think it's important that community members not be viewed as agents of WMF, and the current system for OC appointments seems to imply that WMF has authority to oversee or to control the use of advanced permissions and the OC as an organization. I think that this should be flipped, with WMF supporting community institutions and not the other way around. I'm okay with WMF being involved in the selection process for OC candidates by conducting background checks on candidates and having some limited veto authority, but WMF's role should primarily be one of providing support to community members and institutions such as the OC. Thank you for listening.
