Hello, there! Most of your questions are answered on the survey page[1][2].
The first announcement[3] was an invitation for feedback on the new format.
On October 17, the official decision was made[4] on what projects to serve,
and the position has not changed since. We posted the update on Meta-Wiki,
although we did not update this mailing list (and, for that, we apologize).
This thread was initiated to announce that the proposal phase has begun.

Stewards and global sysops do help out smaller wikis, Yet, if we were to
permit global wishes, they would again dominate the survey and undermine
our goal of answering to the smaller communities, who, up until now, had
little chance of getting something out of the survey. WMF also has some
dedicated resources for stewards, as is the case with Commons and Wikidata.
We wanted to fill in the gaps in cases where no resources exist. We hope
you understand why this decision was made, and keep in mind this format is
an experiment and next year we'll likely return to the broader community.
