Question[edit]

What is meant by "partnership framework"? It's a nice phrase, but explains nothing.
Years ago I came up with the concept of "Wikipedian in Residence", & a number of people independently implemented this. However, I was never able to myself because I had no idea how one would go about doing this. If there were someone who could teach how to approach institutions to do this, offer advice, collect the experience of those who were part of a WiR, that would help sustain the concept of a "Wikipedian in Residence".
Now, if by "partnership framework" one meant some kind of system which included resource people to provide the services I listed above, that would be a tangible example. But if that phrase means nothing more than one or more Foundation employees who would meet with people from other organizations & write memos of these meetings that only other Foundation employees had access to, that would not benefit the projects where the actual content used by hundreds of millions is created. -- Llywrch (talk) 21:56, 28 August 2019 (UTC)
