Judging from http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Fundraising_FAQ , the
thermometer seems to go up to 1.5 million (20 What happens if we reach the
1.5 million before the end of the four-week period? What happens if we don't
reach it? Would the fundraiser be extended, or end early?). I also recall
Danny saying on IRC that checks are being added tomorrow, which would mean
that offline donations are included, but I could be making that up.
