As far as I'm concerned, we haven't reached a consensus either. So what 
with the core values discussion? I don't know about you guys, but I have 
a much better picture in my head about where Matt wants to go, what 
Khaled wants to do, and of course what I would like to see. I'm happy to 
see that it's actually not so far from eachother.

As I see it, the challenge is two-ways. In one direction lies a new 
visual identity / branding of Wordpress. Down that road we have the 
words "classic", "flexible", "friendly", "speed" and a bunch of other 
values that represent where we each see this going. It might just be me, 
but those values are much easier to translate into something concrete, 
than it would be to grab air.

In the other direction, we have an admin revamp, requiring one or two 
usability overhauls that should visually connect to the branding 
direction Wordpress is taking.

So have we accomplished anything? I personally think so. Sorry if I've 
wasted your time. Or did I miss anything?
