Kudos to the community and WMF teams for creating this outstanding document!
I love the brevity, clarity -- and yes, elegance -- of your human-readable summary.
I'm amazed that you managed to fit our most important goals, rights and responsibilities into just 12 bullet points.
It's an inspiring achievement, which I will seek to emulate in my own work.
Well done, everybody!
