On behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation Legal Team,
We have shared a couple of draft iterations during the 60 day comment period. The next step will be for the legal team to take some time to review everything, draft a final version that will be published in mid-May on the Meta consultation page, then we will finalize the approvals and put the update officially on Foundation wiki. Thank you to everyone who provided questions and comments!
