Dear all hackers and lurkers (I know you're out there),

people honestly think.

its strongpoints? What are its flaws? What do you think should be
changed and what should be left the same?
- What are your views on project's leadership? Are they steering us in
the right direction, or are we going downhill? Is community feedback
weighted enough with personal views of the developers? Are we
interacting with people outside the coding community enough to get a
fair view of what could be the best for everyone?
- Do we get too little, just the right amount, or too much feedback
from the developers on things discussed on this list and elsewhere? Do
you think this has a positive or negative impact on the project as a

I'll leave my views out of this message and answer my own questions
later in the thread.
