If you have not already filled out the community survey, I'd like to invite you to take a few moments to do so.
We've received some very good feedback so far -- both positive and negative -- which has been very useful. In a couple days I'm going to close the survey and send a summary to yt-dev, which will be available for the entire community to read and review.
Additionally, if you have feedback you would like to share at any time now or after the survey closes, I'd invite you to email either this list, yt-dev, or one of the developers directly.
