You should all have this email, but I'm attaching it again just in case.

The email refers to a blogpost dating September 20th 2017 (almost one
year already):

In which it says:

This is the wiki page:

As far as I can tell, the last edits were sometime in late 2017.

I participated in the survey and I had a very nice phone interview with
Kristi, I still hope we will eventually see some results. You can see
the kinds of questions I was asked on the wiki page. Maybe it's still
possible to participate, I don't have any information on that.

Personally, I would like to see a better form of governance for the
FSFE, I know that it's extremely difficult. I view the "FSFE in 2020"
initiative as a form of democratic outreach to the FSFE community as a
whole, which IMHO should be embraced and built upon.
