The Polish Wikipedia community has always been strong and active, ever 
since the earliest days when Polish was broken out to separate hosting 
for a while to demonstrate the need to upgrade our wikis for proper

for a change! :)

They were all great bids, which is why the poor bid committee was stuck 
so long making their decision! :) Here's holding out for 2011 and 2012...
