http://www.heise.de/english/newsticker/news/91733 is a translation of
the article that appeared at heise.de this morning, containing more
information about the project.

"German Wikipedia receives state funding

For the first time, the German edition of the open Internet

be setting aside part of its budget to improve information about
renewable resources in Wikipedia. Over the next few years, several
hundred articles will be written on this issue."
