Please provide feedback. We'll make a couple more passes before this is complete. Thanks! -- Andrei

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 else.

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 on.)

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.
