Hi all

Speaking for myself here...

I suspect the team consider the recent developments “testing the water” regarding the possibility of incremental improvements. As the changes have been relatively well received, I think we can bank on further (modest) changes with a realignment of how LaTeX is presented to the world. 

I believe we all understand the importance of stability for LaTeX and that has really been its biggest strength since before I even started using it. But I also believe in very recent times we have started to see that stagnation was becoming a risk for the long term health of the platform. I hope that we can communicate this effectively going forward!
