Just a small point....

I'm curious how the proposed $255,000 for Wikimania travel for staff,
board, advisory board and volunteers compares with what was actually spent
this year?

In the 2011-2012 plan, I see that $96,000 was proposed.  While the travel
costs for SF staff to DC are much less, I find this too low and hard to
believe. Some more details and breakdown by scholarships vs.
staff/board/advisory board would be nice.

I'm curious if we are planning a higher number of scholarships for
volunteers for next year? (as the overall WMF budget increases) and how
many staff are we planning to send next year?
