Question to all candidates: In eight years...

Dear candidates,

this is the echo of a question asked two years ago in the 2010 campaign.

  http://lists.debian.org/debian-vote/2010/03/msg00057.html

In addition, do you see major changes happening in the recent or next years,
and how do you think Debian should react to them ?

Have a nice day,

“In ten^Weight years I'd like Debian...”:

- to be backed by a massively diverse community, even more than today,
  with all kinds of contributions (packaging, Debian-specific sw
  development, sysadm-ing, porting, documentation, translating,
  communication, marketing, user support, ...) balanced in terms of
  available contributors

- to be recognized as THE distribution who care the most about software
  freedom, by all Free Software actors, be them technical or more
  "political" entities

- to have an ecosystem similar to that of the Linux kernel today, in the
  following senses:

  1. have downstream vendors (derivatives distros, hw vendors, and
     whatnot) compete to have their changes integrated where they
     belong, i.e. either in Debian or further upstream

  2. have both volunteers and companies participating into Debian
     development, with both kinds of actors equally submitted to Debian
     customs (peer review, RC bug fixing duties, NMUs, etc.)

  3. as a corollary of (2), have a healthy, visible, and transparent
     ecosystem of Debian-related jobs that allow those who can't afford
     contributing to Debian as volunteers, to do so nonetheless
