The original discussion originated in another thread :
tl; dr Shareholders are committed to adopt open source, but many of them would like to wait until some milestones are reached.
This spin-off thread purpose is to collaboratively edit a check-list of goals to include in a motion for committing to open source adoption.
I start by proposing a checklist, totally open to ideas and suggestions. I will keep the checklist updated in this post . If we find divergence of opinions we can fork the checklist and make another one, to include in two different motions that shareholders can vote, or three, or one hundred.

Please feel free to add, remove or edit item and explain why .
Many of the quantitative values are pretty rough and I just wanted to put it there as an example. I also realise that we (may) need a marketing goal in that list, and I live it to @tomjoad .
This is also a first draft of a roadmap that shows where Nu is headed, but its likely distorted through my personal lens. Thank goodness we have motions.
