agreed. However as the speed of growth accelerates it will place new
strains on the community - IMHO.

great is there a discussion about this somewhere?

That's reasonable - but pretty ambitious. There aren't many products
out there that are developers tools as well as non-web developers
tools. As a matter of fact I can't think of any off hand at all. This
doesn't mean that Drupal can't do it - it just means that it is new
territory (the fun kind).

no I actually have noticed - and everyone is doing a great job. I did
not mean to be negative nor critical - sorry if it came off that way.
