as the year is almost over, I have started to write the yearly report of
what the openZIM did in 2010 and how we spent our money that has been
generously donated by Wikimedia CH.
This document is still a draft, please add whatever you think should be
Meanwhile I prepared the budget for 2011. Due to our decision to combine
our developers meeting with Wikimania in Haifa and pay travel costs in
order to allow all contributors to participate we need a much higher
budget than this year.
I have based my budget on the assumption that we will have to reimburse
10 participants with flights of 500 EUR each and 100 EUR per night in
As we didn't have a 3rd Developers Meeting in 2010 we actually spent
less money as in 2009, there are more than 6000 EUR left. The budget for
2011 also provides a lot of room, as I don't want to deny any
contributors to participate at Wikimania due to lack of money or because
flights might get more expensive etc...
You can help saving our budget by registering for Wikimania right
tomorrow and make use of the early bird discount for registration and
Comments are welcome! Please have a great start into 2011!
