Its all good, I think the change you suggested simplifies the statement
without changing the intent.  We can still do all those other things as
you just indicated if we choose to.

I still want to give the core reviewer team an opportunity to vote on the
change which is why I set the short deadline of Aug 3rd to vote -1 (and
act as a veto vote) which would trigger irc meetings to rework the mission

Thanks for the good feedback, I actually think the modified mission
statement is faster to say which is always a good thing :)
