I don't really understand why we don't even try to get vision and mission done 
at once. The effort is going on since last Akademy, so extending it by e.g. 
two months more doesn't look significant to me.

There's an article and discussion about KDE on lwn.net currently:
https://lwn.net/SubscriberLink/681622/83ac7fd7a6003b5c/ (I hope it's Ok to 
post a subscriber link here)

Quoting from the main article:
"The Plasma 5 release looks, to distributions, like a similar experience. 
KDE's mission still "remains pretty much an unspoken mystery" and there's no 
way for distributors to easily cut through that mystery."

And some of the commenters agree to this.

I think those people might even feel reaffirmed that there is no direction in 
KDE if we now publish only the vision, which I do like, but which 
(explicitely) doesn't give any direction.

My 2 cents
Alex
