Hi Lila, et al I have some one question for you.
I am having a very hard time wrapping my head around how the grant information you posted lead to WMF BoT voting James Heilman of the board in a vote of no-confidence. Something just doesn't add up here. Any chance you can publish the actual grant application from the WMF to the Knight Foundation? I am guessing that the devil will be in those details; details which thus far the WMF has kept completely under wraps. I look forward to you releasing the grant application at your earliest convenience.
