“What should WordPress be used for?”
“What is WordPress’ long term vision aka roadmap?”
John O’Nolan asked to the community, on http://john.onolan.org/calypso/
How about a system, which empower the “back-end” for most simple to complex “thing”- for developers, it’s a starter and “engine” to build- for users it’s a power-full “thing” to use on any web-host (or, without host).
The “front-end”, as the Calypso– is just one way of doing it. It could be done differently, and I assume Matt wants to see what community would build, could come up with, or mix other things to get “the one” to be included with the “WordPress Pack”.
It’s my grasp on the matter. Time will reveal itself. :)
