Me again :)


So I'll kick this up a notch a bit and not ask questions but propose

I'd like the fedora board and or FPL to give us a mission statement.

I'd like to see a plan that I and everyone else can follow to implement
this statement in the work we do.

If http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Overview is correct.  I'd like to see the
page focused and simplified on what we're about.  I'd also like to know
what we should do to get it spread around a bit more.

Somehow I feel like we've not properly set our users expectations right
and in the end it hurts us when they have a bad experience.  Fedora's goal
is not one of a popularity contest, we serve a deeper purpose. [1]


[1]  I could be very wrong on this but the fedora-users thread was
interesting but didn't yield the number of answers I'd hoped.
