I'm extremely grateful to see these three items in the list.  The people
chosen for the team (Tim, Brion, Kunal, Brad) are excellent choices and
I'm confident that, with your direction and empowerment, they have the
ability to fulfill these goals.

This is something that we (the MediaWiki Stakeholders) have been asking
for and I'm very, very thankful that Ms. Coleman is implementing this.

Thank again!
