Special project committee open for business

Florence Devouard-3
The Special Projects Committee is open for business.


The special projects committee (SPCom) has been created by the Board
along with other Wikimedia committees.

Its scope may be described as

1. Distribution of Wikimedia project's content (DVD, Printed,
mirrors...), with or without partners (Wikijunior grant, publishing company)

2 Coordination of Wikimedia projets and possible partner projects to
share and connect content (e.g. Internet Archive, runeberg, libraries,
dictionary data for Wiktionary, movies and images for commons,
geographical data......)

3 Coordination between other committees and researchers to analyse the
projects, in particular when technical or legal issues are involved
(e.g. logs, stats......)

4 Coordination of projects between outside agents and the Foundation for
technical or financial benefits of parties (e.g. feeds to mirror sites,
which pay the Foundation regularly for our materials, answers.com, yahoo
search)

5 Assistance to improve/finance/start a new project proposal
(wikiversity, wikidata...), with implication of outside parties or not

6 Evaluation and incubation of other projects, new concepts, new events,
and ideas, to be handled to other committees if considered interesting
(eg, a conference in arab country next year to event committee)

7 Assist the Foundation in the fulfilment of its philanthropic mission
of providing free knowledge to people everywhere.


The committee is currently composed of Jakob, Danny, Aurevilly, Oscar,
Cormac, Andrew Lih, Muriel, SJ and myself.

Along with this committee, subcommittees will be created as issues
arise. Two subcommittees are under creation, one will be dedicated to
Wikiversity and the other one to the MobiLed partnership also mentionned
today. We may be involved in some of the projects proposed by Gerard as
well, WiktionaryZ and InstantCommons.

You are invited to see more about the committee here :

Input is welcome, as well as proposals.
Keeping in mind that we are still in the process of defining our
procedures so that the committee will run smoothly and effectively. So,
please, do not pressure us :-)


Greetings.
