That's just what I need! a good solid shove on a Monday! 8-)

Balance? The personal is equally important with the technical?

(Debian prides themselves on being merit-driven, but they manage to
be very exclusive - otherwise why would there be a need for

Openness to contribution (maybe not so much)?

Responsibility? We're all responsible for making it good?

I'd have a go if I understood better. What was the motivation of the
Founders, aside from wriggling out from under corporate governance?
What did they see in the future?

For a non-Linux user, the welcome part will do it - just like it did
for Ubuntu. "You're important to us". 

8-) For an existing Linux user, it might be "You're important to us,
so long as you're willing to unlearn some bad habits."

Feedback/input needed!
