This document is still a draft, please add whatever you think should be
I have read the document, fix a few issues and add also 2-3 small
paragraph. This seems to me to correctly reflect the openZIM activities
for the past year. I hope nothing important was forgotten.
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...
Everything seems to be right here, I have no modification to propose.
You can help saving our budget by registering for
tomorrow and make use of the early bird discount for registration and
I know that Manuel, Renaud an me will be there and have already paid
both flight, registration and hotel.
Would be great to see soon more people on this page:
Thank you very much Manuel for putting together budget and yearly
report... and for your patience ;)
