We should definitely highlight real downtime as a
reason for funding,
especially in a way that discusses practical steps that would be taken to
reduce the problem and how much those steps would cost.
Interesting point. Commercial organisations would never issue a press
release highlighting poor performance, because they want people to
think they're getting good value for money. A charity on the other
hand...what does wikipedia have to lose from people thinking its
servers are unreliable due to lack of funding?
The thing that prompted me to start this thread was Google, a
commercial organisation (although not one people pay for at the point
of use), issuing just such a press release.
