Pavol Rusnak rightly noted this discussion of the results of the
strategy survey should be in its own thread, therefore:

Also the Strategy pages contain some insights from the survey:

interesting, especially the part about:

"One third does participate -- not bad at all. Forums are the most
important piece -- is this a typical ENTRY PATH to start contributing?
USER -> FORUMS/MLs/IRC -> BUG REPORTS -> Wiki or Packaging ??? If so,
what do we do to encourage the transitions to the next step? Do we
celebrate our contributors?"

how could it be possible to answer your "is this a typical entry path"
since the forums are less than 2 years old and, from what i've seen in
this ML, many (most?) here consider the forums as a pure waste of
time/energy and therefore no sense in trying to find or 'grow' any
contributors there..(just a bunch of useless non-contributing idiot
"forum talkers")..

so, by and large there has been ZERO attention to spotting and
developing/mentoring contributors from the helpless swamp named Forums.

We did the survey in February 2010, found this result and documented it. The
strategy team did a lot of work and this is one result - and now it's time to
react on it. There have been good interactions in the past and our intend
with posting the strategy statements to the forums was exactly to acknowledge
their importance and ask for feedback in that media as well.

It was eye opening to see the the current state - and it's something that is
noted and I expect to be addressed in due time.

the loss of two years in which to learn the answer of your very on
target question comes due to a techo-bigoted attitude and refusal to
seek answers amongst the low life..

will it go that way for another two years?

Btw. DenverD, it would help a lot if you would be a bit less controversial,
I'm not continuing to discuss in this style,
