This is maybe an important detail.
The results of "Evolve KDE" (https://evolve.kde.org/surveyresults.pdf) 
recommend to "Develop a vision, strategy and focus".
Are we sure we are searching for a vision for the organization (isn't that 
quite close to the manifesto ?) and not for a vision for the products created 
by the organization ?

Also, what do you think about the relation between vision and mission ?
