Hi J,

These are good suggestions for the distro itself, but I really wanted this
thread to focus on the team leadership and team direction for the coming
release.  We'll start a separate thread for specific distro-related
improvements and changes once we get the team aspect in order.

I'm not as familiar with you and your background, but we could sure use your
help if you are interested in contributing during this release.
