There is some information I would like to see in the report which is not 
there, though I don't know if that can be suggested for a template for 
future years. But the main issues I noticed are the following:

  * The lack of production or/and publication dates
  * The "Streamline the onboarding of new contributors" section links to
    https://webchat.kde.org/#/room/#kde-welcome:kde.org
    I was not expecting that a "KDE Welcome team" link in an
    organization's yearly report would point to some instant messaging
    channel, but if that's intentional, I am not sure it was intended to
    link to a "welcome" channel which can't even be consulted without an
    account. If it's really intentional to link to that channel in its
    current state, it would surely be less misleading to have that link
    labelled "a discussion channel created by the new team" or something
    like that.
  * The "Financial working group" section is unclear about the year(s)
    covered. It seems to cover 2018, but also 2017. If it covers both,
    the paragraph in the 2017 Financial Data section is extremely
    confusing at best.
