Public Consultation about the Procedure for Sibling Project Lifecycle, 13 May[edit]

Dear community members,

Following up on the work of the Community Affairs Committee (CAC) of the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees, we invite you to give feedback on a draft Procedure for Sibling Project Lifecycle. This draft Procedure outlines proposed steps and requirements for opening and closing Wikimedia Sibling Projects and aims to ensure any newly approved projects are set up for success. This is separate from the procedures for opening and closing language versions of projects, which is handled by the Language Committee.

You can find the details in this letter and the ways to give your feedback from today until the end of the day on June 23, 2024 (anywhere on Earth). You can also share information about this with the interested communities you work with or support, and you can also help us translate the procedure into more languages so that people can join the discussions in their own language.

Thank you for your participation
