Mailing list numbers are very good. The announce list, if I recall 
correctly, used to have ~8000 subscribers, so this would be a 40-50% 
increment. Also, mailing list numbers show that when we write here we 
write to a much larger audience than the regular posters.

Website numbers are different. Good traffic, but all of it is quite 
focused (3 pages, 2 minutes, few recurring visitors in percentage). This 
can probably be explained by the fact that website visitors are mostly 
people who download or update OpenOffice and are not planning to get 
involved (on the other side, active volunteers will often use other 
resources). Still, it's a potential that we can exploit.

More numbers are coming next week as promised... But in general they 
reinforce the idea that Apache OpenOffice is now a mature project with 
good internal dynamics (even though I still see many fields where we 
need help and mentoring) and that this is a good moment to change pace 
and perspective, and use our full potential. More in one week at ApacheCon.

Occasions for a meeting are rare. It's important that we use this time 
at best. And that we come out with some great ideas and with motivated 
people willing to implement them with respect and backing from the 
community (and the PMC if you wish, but I find it sterile to distinguish 
between the two: OpenOffice is not the playground of the PMC, it is a 
community project for everybody to enjoy).

Me too! I'm looking forward to an exciting, productive discussion and, 
if we need time, to a long night...
