This brainstorming has been ongoing for 3 weeks now.  So far, so good.
 The latest stats are:

533 people have submitted 456 ideas and cast 6,491 votes

If you have not reviewed the new ideas recently, it would be worth
taking another look.  It is good that all ideas are rated, not just
the ones that came in early.

Maybe let it run to the end of September and then we can snapshot it
and start analyzing the results?  Or mid October?  It would be good to
wrap this up in advance of ApacheCon, so we can discuss further there.
