Well, despite my best efforts, the discussion has been redirected back to <

In other words, it is now on the bottom of a discussion page that has not
been touched in 3 years simply because it says something about the WMF
budget.  I'm sorry, but whenever we're having a discussion about $46
million, I think it deserves its own page.  Not to mention the fact that
this annual plan (which is a bit different than a budget) isn't even in the
same league as the ones from 2004-2009.  Nothing on the actual Wikimedia
budget page[1] is up to date, and it doesn't even include the links that
Tilman started this thread with.  Perhaps a bit more budget in the area of
community engagement is called for here.
