Re: [Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia-l Digest, Vol 172, Issue 4

John Andersson-2
Thank you WM RepublikaSrpska for sharing your report. Well done! I know
that it is a lot of work creating a report, but I find it to be a great
opportunity to reflect and learn. It is interesting for us other affiliates
to understand more about what you do. From my perspective you seem to have
a good mix of activities and I hope you will be able to scale even further
in the years to come. I must also say that I am impressed by the large
number of media mentions you've already managed to achieve.

Best,

John
