Preparatory work (to be done by Advisory Group members)[edit]

  • Must-reads
  • Nice-to-reads (if you have time in order of priority)
  1. If there's one aspect of the current proposal that you think absolutely needs to be retained in the final version, what is it?
  2. If there's one aspect of the current proposal that you think needs to change before the proposal is finalized, what is that? (You might know, and say, what the change should be, or you could just point out something you see as a serious problem without having to provide a solution for it.)
  3. If there's one aspect of the current proposal that you find confusing or open to possible misinterpretation, what is it?
  • Bring one Wikimedia related item (a story, an article, a photo, etc.) to share in opening exercise
