There are already numerous tasks about changing uses of the Wikimedia Foundation logo to the new black one. The footer on wikis with "A Wikimedia project" still uses the RGB logo. Should that get adjusted too?

I'm not exactly sure whether the "Wikimedia" in the logo refers to the Wikimedia Foundation (who use the black-only logo) or the Wikimedia movement (who still use the RGB logo?), so I'll let someone who knows the details make the call here.
The patch, in the meantime, is ready to be merged.
The button links to wikimediafoundation.org rather than wikimedia.org so I interpret it as being the WMF logo. If the conclusion is that it's about the movement the the link should probably be updated to reflect this.
Foundation Communications is working on some updates to this icon. The font is also outdated and overall has not been touched in several years - so ideal is to start with a new file rather than modify existing. Our graphics folks are working on it. No changes to URL planned or requested.
It should be questioned whether a button means ‘a Wikimedia [Foundation] project’ or ‘a Wikimedia [movement] project’ before using the new lifeless mark that WMF folks have came up with. To me, for example, this is not quite apparent (yes, it links to WMF site, but that’s more or less because the movement as a whole doesn’t have one).
