I think its critical to discuss the proposed initiatives before hand. The
same was called for in this list not many days ago on the webfont buggy
substandard font issue and technical roadmap of i18n team[1] and we havent
heard about it yet. Though we are working together on the webfonts, a
discussion before development is better. Its not limited to technical
initiatives, the same should also be expanded to everything else whenever
we try to stimulate artificially. Lets remember Wikipedia is purely
voluntary movement and any external push (more than what is required) is
bound to create harm than good.
