Development an maintenance

The wiki is maintained by Wikimedia Foundation staff and contractors, with support from Wikimedia volunteers. The On-wiki documentation working group oversees the wiki's overall non-technical operations. Most content is managed by either the Communications or Legal departments within the Wikimedia Foundation.

Future plans

The Wikimedia Foundation Communications department is working on a future setup for Governance Wiki which will:

  • Allow login to the wiki via the Single User Login (SUL) setup
  • Allow any registered accounts to edit talk pages to facilitate discussions of wiki content
  • Allow any registered account to translate content on the wiki
  • Restrict editing in main namespaces to approved staff accounts

Goals of future plans

The primary goals of these changes are to:

  • Allow for increased participation by already engaged community members than current setup on Governance Wiki permits
  • Facilitate discussion of content on Governance Wiki
  • Eliminate usage of unique accounts on Governance Wiki and allow Single User Login (SUL)
  • Allow for translation of Governance Wiki content into languages other than English
  • Reduce number of duplicate pages on Meta-Wiki of Governance Wiki pages which were created to facilitate discussions or translations
  • Limited liability of editing wiki content to Wikimedia Foundation

Scope

The wiki's content includes Wikimedia Foundation governance and legal materials, such as:

  • Board of Trustees documentation
    • Minutes
    • Resolutions
  • Legal documentation
  • Security documentation
  • Policies approved by the Board of Trustees or Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director
