Hi Craig,
Although forward planning of outcome metrics is obviously a good thing
for the future, I think we should make an effort now to compile
outcomes and metrics for projects, programs and grants that have
already taken place.  Is there an onwiki page for this, or a table to
fill out for each project or grant we have undertaken?  I know there
are some reports linked from here
http://www.wikimedia.org.au/wiki/Reports#Small_grants but surely there
are more hanging around?  Even though you can't enumerate them off the
top of your head, we *should* be able to enumerate them if everyone
writes up the outcomes of projects we've individually been involved
with.  I know there are huge outcomes as a result of the SLNSW
training and residency.. but maybe they have not been tabulated into
reportable dotpoints?
