Per my last post on the subject, I am standing as a candidate in the chapters seat selection process for the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees. (I don’t think there’s a shorter way to put that, which may indicate the unwieldyness of the process itself).
Anyway, as I mentioned, it’s a closed process; only the chapter board members know who’s running, how consensus is going, etc. While this is the prerogative of the chapters, who can both develop the process and choose the winning candidates to their liking, I’m personally not overfond of closed processes. So I’m making my answers to the questions candidates were asked public. I welcome comments and criticism (and more questions), just like in the open elections.
