Talk:ELinuxWiki:Policies & Guidelines
the editor should be listed as the first person to make a decision on content compliance. if there is a debate or disagreement over the compliance the editors decision should be reviewed by a 3 or 5 person panel where the decision of the editor should be reviewed. the editor should not be part of the panel. the decision of the panel should be final.
- This is OK, but it begs the question of who's on the panel. I'm not sure how wikipedia builds it's arbitration committee, but maybe we need to have a specific set of designated arbiters (including people from sponsors and the the general community). We have a task force so constituted now, but I hate to press these guys into long-term service for this. Not to just avoid the issue, but let's see how things go for a while, and just state for now that the policy is to have an independent arbitration committee decide such issues. --Tbird 00:58, 9 November 2006 (EET)
other policies to document
Here is a list of other policies to document. These are either not listed yet, or have not been finalized:
- site branding (only small logos at bottom, no big commercial presence or CELF branding.)
- editorial policy for reverse-engineered information (we already had lots of discussion on this - we need to capture it)
