The Toolserver Association is a proposed structure that is under discussion to manage the Wikimedia Toolserver.
The Wikimedia Toolserver is currently operated and mostly funded by Wikimedia Deutschland. They have requested the assistance of other chapters in running and funding the toolserver.
Following the 2010 chapters meeting, in May 2010 Wikimedia Deutschland announced the creation of a working group to discuss the formation of a Toolserver Association. To participate chapters had to agree to (a) Pay for an equal share of the costs of the working group - estimated at €5,000 and (b) Contribute at least €5,000 to the Toolserver by December 2011.
The following chapters have announced their participation in the Association:
- Wikimedia Deutschland (Germany)
- Wikimedia CH (Switzerland)
- Wikimedia France
- Wikimedia Italia (Italy)
- Wikimedia UK
- Wikimedia Norge (Norway)
