The WMF Readers team published a roadmap review. There is a lot of
information in here that will be of interest to veteran contributors
regarding WMF plans. I was especially glad to see that improvements are
planned for mobile web that should benefit contributors.

Great Dorset Steam Fair happened. 522 full size steam engines. 2008
classic commercial vehicles, 40 diesel heavy haulage, over 200
tractors, 20 odd classic plant,  120 stationary engines, 94 classic
cars and a lot of other stuff (motorbikes, bikes, classic dairy, steam
organs, steam fairground etc). I've got ~1600 to go through and start
adding to this year's commons category:

The fair is still a great source of photos for wikipedia articles.
