Just a quick note, but I believe the Board supports all of these
ideas.  But none of these tasks require the Board's intervention - the
community could get all of this done if they chose to (just as the
Board could too).  There is nothing stopping a community member from
proposing this (probably best on the Marketing list) and getting it
done.  I think these are all fantastic ideas.  I think having a Board
member who owns this could help push it a bit more, but there is
absolutely no reason we can't be working on this right now.
