From the Wikimedia Foundation
| This proposal failed to gain Board support. Therefore, this is not a Wikimedia Foundation resolution.|
This is a partial resolution (full resolution not public), which failed a vote on 22 March 2006 (2 support, 2 oppose, 1 abstain).
The Foundation grants authority to committees to fulfil certain tasks. In return, the Board asks that the committees report back on their activities, and have open and transparent processes wherever possible.
It is hereby resolved that:
- Every committee shall submit a report to the Board monthly.
- Committee members conduct their activities publicly wherever possible, using internal means of communication only when confidentiality is required.
- Committee membership shall be an open and transparent process, with all committee members being informed of changes to membership, and outsiders understanding how they may join the committee.
