It is good that the Wikipedia community (of which I am a part) is trying to come up with metrics to assess contributions of a paid organisation and separating those of the volunteers so that due credit is given to all contributing entities. I had mentioned this here . While CIS has an MoU with Christ Univ, I was speaking up as a person interested in the educational angle and not as a signatory of an MoU (my work with CU is on a consultancy basis as an educational technology consultant which means that I am trying to find ways to improve the learning of the students). AFAIK none of "CIS's partners" have spoken up so your statement in this regard is not valid. Any project needs some time to stabilise itself. And there are times when we need to think long term vs short term and strategy towards a project will automatically vary. I think the community needs to start asking productive questions so that Wikipedia and its sister projects develop. The question of monthly compensation that the A2K employees are taking home from the WM funds is a strong question and the organisation will have to justify this using reliable metrics.
