Excuse me for the blunt question. But are there any shortlisted candidates this time?

A fellow Wikimedian asked me this, and I though I might as well ask the same on this thread.

I'm sure there would be a lot of genuinely interested Wikimedians who would like to attend the conference, in lieu of the sheer number of rejected applicants. (with respect to the successful applicants who would not be able to make it, of course)

Thanks and regards,
