It just struck me that I went thru the entire meeting thinking that the assumption was that we were trying to launch an open source effort to support open source. I now realize that some there were not making that assumption.

I think we need compatible short and long range visions. We don’t necessarily need to draw a complete picture of steps to the ultimate goal. Indeed we must expect the long range goal to shift as we approach it. Indeed contrasting long range visions might serve better and attract more contributors.

This does have the makings of a Dilbert cartoon., so let me get way down into details of desiderata.
