Hi Alex, per Dan's suggestion that I provide a reminder of the original question, here is a reminder of part of what I wrote previously at https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikimedia-l/2018-September/091113.html .
"I think that it would be helpful to have a big picture understanding of the goals, plans, and budgets for conferences collectively. "As far as I know, these are the types of recurring conferences: "(1) Wikimania, which seems to be a multi-purpose international conference, with somewhat open admission if someone can afford to attend, is willing to attend, and can get the necessary legal permissions; "(2) the Wikimedia Summit (which I hope will get a name change to reflect its actual scope, because it's not an all-Wikimedia summit) which will focus on WMF, WMF committees that work with WMF affiliate organizations,and WMF affiliate organizations; "(3) thematic conferences, such as the Wikisource Conference; "(4) regional conferences, such as WikiConference North America; "(5) organization-specific meetings of various kinds, including affiliate organizations' annual general meetings and WMF All Hands, and "(6) the Wikimedia Technical Conference. "I believe that WMF intended to do some strategic planning for the collection of conferences as a part of the larger WMF-led strategic planning process. Is this type of planning underway for conferences, and if so can we get an update regarding what is happening?" I would also like to know why my inquiries about this subject, which started in late September 2018, have been substantively unanswered for over four months despite my multiple requests. I don't expect anyone to instantly stop what they're doing in order to answer a non-urgent email, but I also don't expect four months of delay or for so many requests to be necessary.
