Dear all,

The Wikimedia Foundation has for many years published the presentation
decks from its quarterly "check-ins" – a kind of progress report of each
department – on Commons.[1]

Each check-in or "tuning session", as they have been called in recent
years, covers the relevant department's work during one quarter of the
Wikimedia Foundation's financial year, which begins on July 1 and ends on
June 30.

It's part of the transparent management of the Foundation and allows the
community and interested members of the public to track the Foundation's

In recent years, however, the time lag between the tuning sessions and
publication of the related presentation decks on Commons appears to have
become longer and longer.

In 2020, the slides for the quarter ending June 30 were published on July
13. In 2021, they were published in late September/early October.

This year, we are well into the second quarter of the 2022/2023 financial
year, and not a single fourth-quarter presentation deck appears to have
been uploaded to Commons. The fourth quarter is particular important of
course, as it shows end-of-year status. But the relevant Commons category
still only shows the first three quarters' presentation decks.[1] A search
for "tuning session pdf" on Commons finds no relevant matches either.

Nor, of course, do we have appear to have any presentation decks for the
first quarter of the 2022/2023 year, which ended two weeks ago.

Is there a particular reason for the delay, and/or are the tuning sessions
now made available elsewhere?
