That's a great wrap-up - thanks Molly!
For something a bit different, here is an outsiders view. I found this on
reddit, posted by a user named Ken_Thomas (I don't know who this is, but it
seems to be someone vaguely aware of, but not heavily involved in, the

I've asked about, and from I can find the WMF has contracted out collection
