That's great news!

I'm interested, what exactly needs refinement or improvement? How will this 
get implemented? Does this imply, that MOTUs are not able to improve and 
refine themselves when necessary? What effect will it have on the current 
MOTU government structure?

What needs to get improved from the current technical processes? Saying that 
Canonical does a greater amount of commitment for MOTU now, does this imply 
that changes which Canonical wants, will thus get enforced to MOTUs?

Where do you see possible conflicts inside the developer community? How will 
this integrate with the current means of conflict resolution?

   Stefan - with many questions ;)
