I don't really think this is a triviality.
Cents and single dollars of chapters are weighted and analyzed,
FDC and GACs nitpicks and their goal is to assure that donor moneys is not
We all know that there are issues on that and a lot of chapters had to work
hard to be able to draw their budget, and receive their money.

40'000 $ for Wikimania travels are a lot, especially compared to the travel
budget of chapters. Period.
I would assume that WMF and the Board budgets should be reasonably
proportional to chapters ones.
Maybe I'm the only one, though.
