That`s true. To get the "softer landing" improving the doc (and i think the ways of it) would be enough. The project management is more about to lead the people to achieve common goals. I don`t know how you people from the core lives with so few contributors. The high goal of this thread is to improve that.

About management from the wikipedia: "Project management is the discipline of planning, organizing, securing, and managing resources to achieve specific goals."
