Wikipedia does not yet have an Editorial Committee. Still, as editorial decisions need to be made, these decisions should be shared with each other such as to avoid creating redundant debates regarding various similar matters of editorial approach. Its important to keep an abstract record of our own deliberations: Editorial findings we make with regard to issues we discuss should then be logged in detail, and thereafter referenced directly.
For example, to ascertain the validity of particular sources is outside of our scope, nevertheless the sources we often cite are subjected to criticism and censure, such that provide us with concepts for how we distinguish certain sources as reliable and others as not. These decisions should be made by discussion and references to outside meta-sources that deal directly with the issue of source reliability.
