Extension request[edit]

New end date[edit]

20 December 2018

Rationale[edit]

I'd like to request an extension for the midpoint report. The timing of this report is unfortunate in that it almost falls at the same time as the new grant request, which took priority. Another 2-3 weeks should do the trick. Thanks! (cc m.hekmat and Claudia.Garad) Effeietsanders (talk) 04:54, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

Approval[edit]

@Effeietsanders, Claudia.Garad, and M.hekmat: Thanks for the request, Lodewijk. I am happy to grant this extension, but this report was due on November 29th; please note that requests should be made before the deadline for reports. This extension request has been approved, and your new midpoint report due date is December 20th. Take care, I JethroBT (WMF) (talk) 17:38, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
