Hoi, As far as I am concerned when the chapter and CIS work together, they will achieve more and bicker less. The more prominent the bickering the stronger will be the urge to cut on funding and to be extra careful when giving additional funding.
I am a long time Wikimedian, I have over 300.000 personal edits on Wikidata alone. My dream is to use Wikidata to generate text that can be read in any language. This is not rocket science but it needs the cooperation of people. People that could be you. For me CIS has been important because the support I got from them has given me the stick to get languages supported in Wikidata without any prior localisation. There are two languages I asked it for and one is from India. When I asked for the cooperation of the Tropenmuseum my motivation was that it would make pictures that are in Dutch museums available to people in Indonesia. It did. NB these two languages may be functional next week. When they are it will be REALLY easy to get a foot print in Wikidata and consequently in Reasonator. Reasonator may take some tweaking ... My affiliation is with free knowledge and my aim is to get more of it. CIS has been helpful in this in a practical way. I like to work with people from India and I do so regularly. I like to work with people who make things happen, they are the ones that are important to me.
