Current state for Upper Sorbian and Lower Sorbian Wikipedias:

1. Banner leads to the page in German of Wikimedia chapter Germany
2. Link "Donate" in sidebar leads to the "GERMAN!" version of Jimmy's appeal
3. The new banner has German text.

These three points reduce translation of fundraiser texts for minority 
languages to absurdity! My translations appear *nowhere*.

Why is not linked to site


as in the last years?

That's a good survey of fundraiser.
