Hi Greg,

Thank you for working on this and sending out the reminder along with the current variations!

My main comment to the below statements is that they are not really mission statements. They are describing what the StarlingX platform currently is, but they don’t talk about what the project’s and community’s mission is.

I looked up a few large companies’ statements for reference:
* Google: "Our mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful." - https://about.google
* Tesla: "Tesla’s mission is to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy." - https://www.tesla.com/about

To formulate one for StarlingX, I think it would be a good exercise to talk a bit more about the topic by trying to answer questions like: Why is the community working on this platform? What are the contributors trying to achieve and what they would like to help the project’s users to achieve?

So when we say that ‘The StarlingX project’s mission is to …’ we can finish the sentence with an active statement that describes why the project exists, what its purpose is and where it is going.

Best Regards,
