Despite repeated assurances at Wikimania, on lists and on strategywiki, 
that the strategic plan was going to consider all Wikimedia projects as 
important, now at 
http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Resolution:Five-year_targets the 
second target, «Increase the amount of information we offer» considers 
only the number of Wikipedia articles.
«We're aware of the challenges around bot-created articles, articles of 
low quality, etc., and the limited focus on Wikipedia, so this metric 
shouldn't be seen in isolation, but is an important indicator.» Yes, but 
a wrong one.

I'm, very, very disappointed: I have to conclude that all the words on 
community participation etc. were only empty rhetoric.
