Thank you Veronique for posting this! I appreciate your continued
diligence in making material available to us.

I would like to encourage everyone to be sure and actually read this
plan closely; "continued growth" turns out to mean nearly doubling the
staff next year, and doubling the budget -- rather surprisingly
dramatic growth. There is a lot of change that is planned for here,
and many of these changes relate to areas that community members do
work in.

Personally, I would love to see some serious community discussion of
this plan both here and at Wikimania next week.
