Is the blue (pmtpa = Florida) a cost for WMF, and
the green (knams
= Amsterdam) a cost for someone else (Kennisnet + Wikimedia
Deutschland)? How much could WMF save if there was a knams-likeSquid
When I donate to the WMF, do I help paying for the blue only, or
also for the green part of these diagrams?
Wikimedia Deutschland doesn't support infrastructure in this manner.
Their sponsorship at knams is the toolserver.
Well, that is definitely not correct.
Just from my head, without checking further sources:
While it is correct that all four servers of the toolserver (zedler,
hemlock, yarrow, [vandale?]) are provided by Wikimedia Deutschland (two
donated by SUN, two bought by WM-DE), this is only a small part of our work.
So for example Wikimedia Deutschland is also providing half of the Squid
proxies in Amsterdam (15x servers/initial costs more than 60k euros) and
the backup server (~14k euros). So it is more than appropriate to say
that WM-DE is supporting the infrastructure.
