While the international WLM team has strived to keep coordination in the 
past, exceptions were made where needed (e.g. in Israel). WLM-IT is a 
project that costs tens of thousands of euro of internal WMIT resources, 
so WMIT has the duty to run it when it works best.

Agreed. In said ideal world, however, WMF should also care about it.
