Please provide feedback. We'll make a couple more passes before

This list is full of good and worthy stuff, but is very long.
Most of this won't be done in 2H16, so calling these "2H16
priorities" is misleading, and doesn't give a good impression.
For someone who really know where the language is headed, there's
no sense of what will really be done in the next six months, what
is in progress and might be done, and what stuff is just wishful
thinking. The fact that so much is just copied over from last
half says it all.
Some of these, especially the marketing, are evergreen tasks.
("Promote books and articles"). If there's something concrete you
have in mind for 2H16 say it, otherwise, it belongs somewhere
This is a really good long-term vision list, and it might be
better labeled that, with different items slated for expected
realization (2H16, 1H17, "Who knows?"), etc. (Links to associated
bug reports would be useful too, so we know what's being worked
In general, I feel like a list like this should actually be
achievable. There's a silly, but still useful, business thing
called "S.M.A.R.T." goals: Specific, Measurable, Attainable,
Realistic, and Timely. This ain't that.
