Off the cuff reply and I'll give this more thought and planning if 
others are supportive

1) I think the most important thing is grow the community
     a. Let people know how important and STL is
     b. Advocate for wider adoption/testing (See if we can get prebuilt 
packages and clear instructions for how people can use/test STDCXX)

2) Evaluate and get feedback from you and others about how we can 
improve the project (Communication, code review, growth opportunities.. etc)

3) From my $JOB I can advocate to help with code review, QA and ensuring 
good contributions like what you've done before actually get committed
One thing I don't yet have a clear idea how to accomplish is C++11 
support. A C++03 STL is far from dead, but we need a 2-4 year plan to 
catch-up with others.

My guiding principle is :
Use, love and contribute back

We need to increase our userbase 1st to start this cycle
