1) «Invest in software developers to improve management of volunteer code contributions and to execute strategic priorities (e.g., database dump production, usability initiatives)» (p. 7).
2) «Increased spending on technical infrastructure»; «Additional technical staff»; «deferred necessary spending fot reliability, backups & performance; elimination of artificial restrictions on upload file size» (p. 13).
Great (especially devs, reliability, backups & performance), but why do you think that we will not underspend 2 M$ next year, too?
And how can we nearly decuple «in-kind revenue» and «income from live feed deals, trademark deals, etc.» (p. 8)?

Hello everyone - this note is cross-posted on the Wikimedia blog at:
Earlier today we uploaded the Wikimedia Foundation’s 2008/2009 Annual Plan
presentation and Questions and Answers page to the Wikimedia Wiki. These
materials were approved at the June 20 Board of Trustees meeting. They can be
accessed via the Finance Report page:
Posting our plan and (hopefully) answering some of your questions in advance is
part of our commitment to providing transparent information about the Foundation’s
goals and spending.
The Annual Plan lays out projected spending through the next fiscal year (which
for us starts today and runs the rest of the year). The plan describes spending
in our three main operational areas: technology, programming, and financeand
administration. We also introduce our 2008/2009 organizational goals, which we
hope to discuss in more detail in the coming months.
For your information and awareness!
