Wikimania, 2005ean hasi zenetik, hona erronka bat izan da komunitatearentzat. Ohiko bilakatu diren Wikimaniako batzuk beren gain hartu dute urtez urte ekitaldi arrakastatsuak egiteko ardura. Halere, tokiko antolakuntzek ekarpen handiak egiten dituzte ere eta ekimenaren hobekuntzan funtsezkoak dira.

To allow the conference to grow more smoothly, it seems sensible to pool the years of knowledge that we have into a body that oversees the Wikimania process from beginning to end in its yearly cycle. A permanent Wikimania committee would oversee the bids, handle jury selection for bid review, and provide continuity of experience and mentoring to each year's organizing team.
