Perhaps this needs to be done in a less time-intensive way. Couldn't a
large glossy Quarto be published every 6 months instead of every 3,
with simple text based reports from the Board given monthly in
addition to the reports I already make at
http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Meetings ? When I say simple, I
mean the report would be on one page, not split across various wikis
and various templates. These reports could be limited to what actually
happened, rather than opinions on that, meaning it could be much
shorter than it would be in Quarto, and therefore much quicker and
easier to translate.
If the aim of the newsletter is to get Board information out to people
in a timely way, then I don't think Quarto is meeting that goal, and I
don't think it should try to. I see Quarto as something less
time-urgent, and something which ought to be developed by the
community, not the Board.
I'm copying this to Foundation-l since the the distribution of
information from the Board needs to be discussed by more people than
the very small group on the Quarto list.
