Budget notes[edit]

Tech : Full technical cost for WikiFundi dev to pay to Kiwix was $9237, which is WAY more than originally planned (3000 dollars).
I reallocated the funds planned for tech support for tutorials to the tech development (1000 dollars), which I tried to manage alone... spend quite some time on those, and finally drop them as it revealed seriously more complicated than initially thought.
Then I found somewhere else about 1950 CHF to pay Kiwix. The rest was covered by contingency and cutting on some other expenses.
