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

"I think that it would be helpful to have a big picture understanding of
the goals, plans, and budgets for conferences collectively.

with somewhat open admission if someone can afford to attend, is willing to

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.

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
