Last year at the Wikimedia Hackathon in Zürich, the WMF and several chapters pooled travel budget funds for sponsoring volunteer developers. The WMF budget was allocated first based on global merit. Then every chapter promoted developers from their country. Everybody was very happy about the experience. Let's repeat it!
