[Wikimedia-l] Changes in the Board

Patricio Lorente
Dear All,

Throughout the discussion about the appointment of Arnnon Geshuri to the
Board of Trustees, the Board has carefully listened to you and discussed
internally. Earlier today, Arnnon decided to step down from the Board. To
paraphrase his words, he doesn't want to be a distraction for the important
discussions that the community and the Foundation need to face in the times
to come. We want to thank Arnnon for his ongoing commitment and for helping
us to move forward.

The Board Governance Committee is working to improve and update our
selection processes before we fill the vacancy left by Arnnon’s departure.
We are sorry for the distress and confusion this has caused to some in our
community, and also to Arnnon.

Patricio and Alice

----

Patricio Lorente
Chair, Board of Trustees

Alice Wiegand
Vice Chair, Board of Trustees

Indeed. Thank you, Arnnon, and best wishes to you.

Given that this matter is concluded, can the board now please come to a
decision on whether the Knight Foundation grant letter and grant
application documents will be posted on Meta, and if not, provide an
explanation to the community why they cannot be made public?

To recap, Jimmy Wales said over two weeks ago on his talk page[1] that in
his opinion the documentation should be posted on Meta, to clear the air
around this issue. However, nothing appears to have happened since then.

Thank you, Arnnon (and the rest of the board) for making the right
decision.

This is a reminder that very little touched by Google remains untainted,
in the UK we hope that George Osborne follows suite.

In reply to this post by Patricio Lorente
Thank you, Patricio.

And thank you, Arnnon. I am sure this must have been difficult for
you, that you had every intention of bringing your best work to the
role, and that your considerable experience and skills would have been
valuable. I appreciate your willingness to step up to the task, which
is not a small thing to ask of anyone, and now in light of the
challenges and complications it would bring, your willingness to step
down.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Changes in the Board

Dariusz Jemielniak-3
hi,

Since I am one of the few people in the movement who spoke to Arnnon
 face-to-face, I want to write that he is a really modest, while
sparking-bright person, explicitly enthusiastic about Wikimedia and free
knowledge.

I want to thank him for his maturity and confirming in action the
willingness to support our movement in any way it needs. While it was the
right thing to do, it could not have been easy, and  I have to say I really
respect that.

best,

Dariusz

Thankyou Arnnon.  I imagine it can't have been a pleasant decision for you
to make when you obviously feel that you have a lot to contribute, but I
think your decision is in the best interests of the Foundation and of the
movement generally, and for that I am appreciative.

Cheers,
Craig Franklin

Thank you to Arnnon and the Board.

I'm sorry this situation arose, but this was the best way to resolve it.

Best wishes,

If Kat can echo me, then I can echo Kat. Thank you to the Board, and
Arnnon in particular.
