Hi Lila,

A few questions:

1. What is the URL for the 2016 consultation?

2. You wrote, "This is a major step to help us prioritize the work of the
Foundation beginning in July 2016 and running for the next 12 to 24 months
thereafter into a strategic plan." It seems that there will be some overlap
in the development of the 2016-2017 Annual Plan, and that the completion of
the strategic plan process will come too late to significantly influence
the AP until after the AP is already being executed. Can you share with us
which principles are being used to guide the development of the 2016-2017
Annual Plan which this document [1] is scheduled to be published for
community review on March 31, 2016?

3. Could you clarify, in the 2016-2017 AP plan timeline [1], what the
difference is between "core work" and "strategic work"?

4. What methodology is WMF using for developing the 3-year forward revenue
forecast, and is WMF incorporating into this forecast any new potential
varieties of revenue?

I will likely have further questions as we go through these processes.

Thanks!
Pine
