Wikimedia Foundation fundraiser continues

The Wikimedia Foundation fundraiser was extended this week, and will end on 15 January, to coincide with Wikipedia Day. As of press time, the fundraiser had raised over US$900,000. Matching funds donations from Virgin Unite have not yet been received. Wikimedia Foundation Chair Florence Devouard indicated that no more matching funds promotions were scheduled for this fundraiser.

The Wikimedia Foundation C.O.R.E. fundraising site has been updated to include all donations from 2006 (though until the database is updated to indicate whether donors wished their name to be public, all old entries appear as 'anonymous'). The site indicates that during 2006, the Foundation received US$1,467,062.93 in donations (before fees).

Mailing lists moved

The mailing lists for Wikipedia and other projects have changed to new addresses after the Wikimedia Foundation migrated them to a new server. All new addresses will use, so that for example the English Wikipedia mailing list is now wikien-l at Old addresses will still work, but the transition will include mail headers and may require recipients to adjust any filters or other settings they use to read list messages.
