I'm not sure about these personas, too, but I'm quite sure that we have
a communication problem on the ml: Our current status is 'Go out and
pray'. This is nice, of course, but makes everybody run in different

These personas will hopefully help us to focus.


P.S.: Example: Instead of running in different directions called
'users', 'developers', and 'distributions', we should concentrate
on users _and_ developers _and_ distributions of scintific applications
in 2006; with something else following in 2007 and 2008. 

 Msg:   A bit of GNOME'iness won't hurt! 
 Idea:  To convince people that the ideas driving GNOME
        (ie. HIG and Gobject stuff) are good for them. 
 Tasks: Establish marketing workflow for GNOME, ie. means to
