Recap of Goals/Scope:

Marketing the WordPress Community: this subgroup feel strongly that the community is a very big selling point of the software, and promoting some of the things that are coming out of the community would raise awareness and encourage adoption of the software; that could include raise awareness about accessibility or internationalization advancements, or even helping local groups with marketing materials or resources for their community.
