[Wikimedia-l] Fwd: Diversity Working Group Recommendation 9 - proposal to split in two: "Terms of Use update" and "Licensing Policy update"

Aron Manning
This draft resulted in the longest talk page
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Strategy/Wikimedia_movement/2018-20/Working_Groups/Diversity/Recommendations/9>,
and the most passionate feedback. The responses mostly address the
Licensing Policy update, that turned out to be a very heavy topic, while
the Terms of Use update is overlooked.
I think both are equally important, but raise very different concerns and
technical questions. The community feedback would be more focused, if these
two were split into their own recommendations.

I suggest the Terms of Use update be split into recommendation 14 with the
next iteration, so the community can reflect on that topic as well.

It would be also helpful to add cross-references to the strongly
related Recommendation
# 1: Code of Conduct
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Strategy/Wikimedia_movement/2018-20/Working_Groups/Diversity/Recommendations/1>,
and Community Health Recommendation #1
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Strategy/Wikimedia_movement/2018-20/Working_Groups/Community_Health/Recommendations/Rules_and_regulations,_decision_making_processes_and_leadership>

I'm posting this here, as it seems more likely that it reaches WG members.

Aron
