I want to stress this sentence! I believe many participants will agree.

There are many ways to create a community backlog, and none of them will be
perfect. The Community Tech team chose to have a process relatively simple
to organize and to participate in, doing some sacrifices along the way to
keep that simplicity (I know well, they knocked off several ideas I
suggested). :D

The resulting backlog is just the beginning of a new phase that could be
just as fun. 10 tasks have been selected by CT, and we need everybody's
imagination to find the best ways to solve the rest.

For instance, I'm proposing to select project candidates for hackathons
from this Wishlist (https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T119703) not only
because it seems a good thing to do, but also because I believe that the
people who voted for these proposals and the developers looking for
interesting hackathon projects can continue having fun together. Achieving
goals is important, but enjoying the ride together is just as important.
