My only hesitation is whether to pick entire paragraphs which are
three or four questions in one, or whether to lift single sentences
from them when I like those single questions. (Whether or not it was
the main thrust of the question.)

I assume it's up to me which I do (and there is a docs question going
begging in the middle of one of them, so grabbing that is tempting :)), 
but comments are welcome.

I'd say 'pick entire paragraphs': this way, candidates will more easily
understand what the person who posted the question meant. But you can of
course just pick one question from a long paragraph: you're right when
you say this is up to you :-)

So I pasted all the long paragraphs in, and ended up with a 
colossally long mail. I thought a way to deal with this might 
be to say: 

I am now very inclined to do this:

 1 How do you manage your time and that of others?
And put a whacking great "_read the whole post_" note at the top.

Even doing this, I have something like an 80+ line post, and
that's before they start replying to it!

No technical questions. The board of the Foundation is not involved in
technical decisions, so we should really avoid these questions. We all
agree here.

Good stuff. Okay, I have a provisional list of ten questions and
links to them. One of them was actually moderated down as flamebait
but underneath the rant there is a good question about process
and momentum. 

So. Now what? Do I post them, or send them to you (which address?)
and you send them to the candidates, or what?

You can see them for now at
