Discussions between chapters I have absolutely no problem with and whole heartedly encourage. It is WMUK (or any other chapter, for that matter) negotiating, directly or indirectly, with the WMF (and if we're involved in the committee, then the committee negotiating with WMF is WMUK indirectly negotiating with WMF) before seeking legal advice that I strongly advise against. Getting legal advice once the negotiations are complete is too late. _______________________________________________ Wikimedia UK mailing list wikimediau...@wikimedia.org http://mail.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediauk-l WMUK: http://uk.wikimedia.org
