Business agreements and chapters[edit]

A question. When the chapters and the Foundation held their meeting in netherlands in spring, there was an agreement from the WMF side that a practical proposition regarding business agreements made by chapters would be presented to chapters by WMF business development team.

I am not aware we received anything practical which could clarify what chapters may or may not do, as well as clear procedures for future partnerships. Maybe I missed the email entirely. If not, can you update us on when we can expect clarification ? Could this happen before the next WMF-chapters meeting ?

Thanks

I started a page for this purpose a while ago: http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/FLOSS-Exchange

We have a mixed Mac/Linux office environment. We're not currently using open source software for accounting and for more complex design work. Most calendaring is done via Google right now. - Erik
