Kopimi license[edit]

I hope it is ok to respond to one of the questions without being a member of the board:

Could KOPIMI license be added to Wikimedia Commons as acceptable?

This license is available since 2007 at Wikimedia Commons, just use {{Kopimi}} as license tag. An overview of supported license tags at Commons can be found here and we are always open to new licenses that can be considered to be free. --AFBorchert (talk) 15:19, 22 July 2012 (UTC)

Jan-Bart: I think that we should limit the "on page" answers to board members (because they were originally questions asked of us, but this seems like a good place to answer this :) Jan-Bart (talk) 08:27, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

WCA question[edit]

Without intending to speak for the present board, the question "What is the WMF's view on the Chapter Association? Could it help improving communication and vice-versa trust?" was to some extent answered in this blog post we published in April after the Berlin conference:

"hopes are high that the WCA will make a huge contribution to help chapters develop, and lift the relationship between WMF and chapters to a new level. The Foundation congratulates the chapters and looks forward to working with the new organization."
