I think those are good points, and I certainly agree with the merits
of having that separation be clear. I just wonder whether we truly
*can* have such a separation, and whether there then is a vacuum in
leadership and policy guidance that we need to fill, because I think
people are expecting more than what we're expecting to give at the
well, hopefully, by keeping the role of this team limited, all of you
should be free to do the needful outside of the team in filling that
vacuum. and if people listen more because you are on the FWT, that
doesn't hurt either as long as there is a clear separation.
one thing you guys(and all of us non-voters) can do is throw some rocks
in the direction of marketing. getting some people on the stick to fill
that void *now* would make all the difference. In proprietary software
dev, marketting/product management drives the feature choices and
therefore has a 6-12month drop on the release.
so...send a letter to your local board member.
rocky has requested an end to philosophizing on this subject so I will
respectfully end any comment hitherto.
