Helps if my spellchecker doesn’t think it knows better than I which word to use, too. I
meant that we can put up plans—not detailed schema nor schedules, but something closer to
aspirations, say 'wish lists"—where they are visible to developers.

> I don't think of descriptions and sketches as plans, in the case of software.  Perhaps
because I see planning and scheduling confused together so much.  But I think planning at
least specifies a progression and staging of work and I am wary of anything like that absent
someone who is prepared to follow-through.  This is probably a trifle though.

It’s useful to pry the two apart from a marketing perspective and also product management
one. The idea is to attract developer interest. That can be done on several levels. One is
more abstract than the other and would reach a different audience.

As it happens, your email client seems to prefer that and I figured you did, too. Won’t
happen again, at least not intentionally.
