** In May 2010 we have agreed to participate in a working group looking at setting up a Toolserver Association. As part of that agreement, we agreed to contribute €5,000 to the costs of the Toolserver plus our share of the €5,000 costs of the working group. There are currently five participating chapters - DE, CH, FR, UK and IT - so our share will be €1,000. The total €6,000 will be spread over the period June 2010 - Dec 2011.

Other items?

  • Travel for other chapters to attend the Chapters meeting (~£500); ditto for Wikimedians attending Wikimania (as much as we want to spend - issues to be discussed regarding logistics and whether it would be restricted to UK Wikimedians)
  • CfP outcomes
  • Wikimania bid (Manchester Wikimania Bid/Bid budget - about £340 in 2010)
  • Events surrounding Wikipedia Day (Wikipedia's 10th birthday) in January 2011
