So let's decide, then. Let's put the set of things we could be focused
on up. If we have 10 things we can focus on then we have 5 points to
delegate to each. We count them all up - the top 5 things are ALL we do
for F9 and F10.

I'd suggest there are two different levels here:
* what target market/vision does fedora have? these are big, permanent
things, not things that can be 'done' in any given release.
* then there are specific things done to implement the vision in any
given release.
