The further into the future you try to set expectations, the more error you
are likely to have when you have volunteer workforces, and therefore there
is a greater chance that you won't meet those expectations.

But good marketing of the present sets expectations properly and folks can
immediately find out that it not only works as expected, but works better
than expected.

That's how I think we can be successful as a project.  By cranking out
releases that solve problems for people and showing people that they can
solve their problems today.

Anything we say about the future right now is likely to be met with
suspicion anyway.  I think this is a critical year for Flex.  We have to
build a track record of releases that show that we are making progress.
