Board passes three resolutions

The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees passed three resolutions in April which were made public this week. One resolution requires all stewards, OTRS volunteers, developers with access to nonpublic information, and users with "checkuser" or "oversight" access to provide identification and confirmation that they are 18 years of age, and of age in their jurisdiction. The identification would not be publicly provided except when required under the Wikimedia Privacy Policy. Deleted revisions are not considered nonpublic information for the purposes of this resolution, meaning that administrators who do not serve in any of the capacities listed above would be exempt from the policy.

The other resolutions create an Executive Director search committee and revise the Foundation's Mission and Vision statements.
