First, I'd like to notify you that the WLM-i mid-point report is now
available on Meta here
In no less than 7 weeks, we have the deadline for our next grant request
for the upcoming WLM competition 2023. Within the team we have spoken about
the financing model on several occasions, and I also want to use this
opportunity to get your ideas about this.
The international team is considering asking our current fiscal sponsor
Wikimedia Austria to include the annual budget for WLM-i in their
multi-year grant. We would be putting terms and conditions in writing, and
WLM will stay an independent organized competition. But it would save the
international team time to not have to write a grant request for new funds
and 2 reports on the same competition every year (with all communications
before and after that come with these requests and reports).
A more extensive explanation is available on the mid-point report talkpage
it would be great to collect your input and ideas on the topic.
