Thanks to you both for lots of great writing, this is really helpful. I'm  
pretty much in 100% agreement on what you've written so far — so don't  
take my silence as anything but consent at the moment. Battling US  
immigration authorities in Brazil to try to get back to the US, so my time  
is limited at the moment. :)

Wanted to comment on one particular subject that was mentioned:

I agree, and I think we should also arrange more sprints that are less of  
the "travel somewhere and see the world" type. Local sprints (see  
SuperHappyDevHouse etc for inspiration) are really valuable, and there are  
several natural pockets of Plone developers around the world — San  
Francisco, Amsterdam, Oslo (well, Tønsberg ;) and more.

A local 1-2 day event — during the week or the weekend — can go far in  
getting some real work done, and I'm planning to do one with Steve McMahon  
and Joel Burton (or at least one of them) and others here in San Francisco  
as soon as possible.

Related, World Plone Day might offer some useful insights on these pockets  
and the potential for local sprints.
