That sounds reasonable to me. Considering that there has been *zero* 
evidence of any actual wrongdoing, such as theft of Wikimedia Foundation 
money---despite The Register's strange/unsupported insinuations that the 
matter somehow is related to the audit of Foundation books---I don't see 
this matter as anything more than a minor embarrassment. The person in 
question no longer works for Wikimedia and the hiring process has been 
changed so it won't happen again, so it sounds like the matter ought to 
be closed?
