    • Overall attitude and behaviors of current developers
  • Figuring out what people think of PEAR (and how we can make that positive)
  • I don't think its all great thoughts
  • Lots of people are turned off by the installer21
  • We have lots of positive aspects too, how do we focus on them
  • Website organization/updates
    • get users' feedback. A lot of people use pear or even write articles yet very little exists to show this material on the site
  • Review Suggestions from:
  • Dealing with unmaintained/deprecated/dead packages
    • Also dead pepr proposals

    • Creating some sort of roadmap to move us forward
  • Creation of working groups to move projects forward

    • Creating a mentoring program
    • Community outreach
    • Evangelists (Driven by Greg?)
      • Success Stories
    • porting peardoc to livedoc (mainly helping the php effort, has to be this summer, phillip has more details)
    • Website Look/Feel Redesign/Update
    • Some kind of news effort, weekly/bi-weekly/monthly, perhaps working with Steph, this would only be couple of people that would over see the project and other people should be able to contribute easily
      • Good way to get outside people more in sync what's happening in the community
  • PEAR's week of code (David)
    • Idea
    • Sponsorship
    • Priorities
  • Tools
    • how to keep track of all that (wiki, trac, other: basecamp, etc) ?
    • have a serendipity install or other to manage publishing news on the site (committing to cvs and updating the site is not the greatest thing). We can also have a PEAR official blog.
  • Some sort of Design Guide to go along with coding standards, this would be a more in depth guide covering some common patterns guidelines for class/method sizes etc, would also be non binding just a guide, would need lots of community help
