      • 2 weeks notice;
      • vote on meta;
      • announce notice period at next wikibase meeting;
      • ranked or approval votes? Like affiliate board position votes? Will investigate what others use.

    • 2020: cleaning to keep only activities of the user group -> Envel Done
    • Scour telegram and mailing list for any additions directly related to the group. eg. dev help, wikibase registry
    • Community members encouraged to add their projects in the future when relevant; and related discussions on desired features, discussion platform -> potentially justifies WMF/WMDE contributions/assistance to group.

    • Set up meta page for user contacts voting – have people nominate themselves. -> GreenReaper Done - created draft election plan, suggest ratification at the 2021-06-24 meeting prior to nominations.
