Thanks for sharing the report. Once again, there is a significant
underspend. Does that concern you? It seems the WMF is consistently
not fully utilising its capital (so, either, you're fundraising too
much or doing too little). It often seems to be the case that the
underspend is due to not hiring new staff as quickly as expected. The
FAQ mentions that the plan was overly ambitious. Do you have a plan in
place to ensure your future annual plans include more realistic
projections of hiring and other spending?
