Hello Oliver,

thank you for your feedback.  :-) Here are my answers to your questions:

Yes, maybe you can cover this topic with a research & development group which is also responsible for some market analysis

I am always a little bit afraid that TYPO3 might be replaced by an other, simply better technology within short time like the tapes were replaced by CDs and the CDs by MP3 or the fax by email. So I think it will always be good to keep an eye on that or even better to create a technology which is able to spread quickly and replace others. Also this topic might be covered by the research & development group.

Yes you can summarise this like that :-)

Maybe it should also be clarified, why a vision is necessary and what will be the task of the vision. I think one task could be that the objectives of TYPO3 are more important for the contributors than their individual targets regarding TYPO3.  Therefore it is always good to find something as a vision where people can easily identify with. It is said people are more motivated, when they think they do something good, which solves problems and could make other people happy or the world even a little better, what do you think?

with best regards
