Owwww. It kind of stings to read
<http://hire.jobvite.com/Jobvite/Job.aspx?j=ou3gXfwu>, apparently a
position listing from the Legal and Community Advocacy team, looking for a
WordPress contractor to do a face-lift for the Wikimedia blog, when OTRS
is struggling to stay functional. I don't do much OTRS-related work, but
I find it easy to imagine some OTRS volunteers reading this and wondering
what's going on.
