Ah, from your little finger
I likely wouldn't involve fingers, to not get the wrong idea, basically an educated guess. This is a common sense approach in real life, no special reason it wouldn't work here to.
As for the rest, to be honest it reads more like a brainstorming. Nothing wrong with that, but we need to be realistic on the time frames. At minimum somebody would need to dedicate around 3 to 5 years of effort, to start getting some results, for each idea listed. Feel free to do it, but lets focus on doing a 1.0 first. Starting with the next development cycle. We have done the ground work, have invested the time needed in discussing and understanding, in the past couple of years, have reached the general agreement, that will have to do. Doing 1.0 doesn't in any way prevent you to achieve the listed ideas in the future. And lets face it, arguments from opposition are weak, more of a list of personal expectations, often ideas, not all that related to doing 1.0 in the first place. Sometimes disagreement just for the sake of disagreement, usual stuff. In some general sense of things.
With all due respect to other people, i personally feel this should be covered, unless other key people start saying NO, my sincere expectation is for next development cycle to be 1.0 oriented.
I doubt it would be much different, in this regard, if somebody would be paid 50.000 a year, for being involved in FreeCAD project. Such person would still need to do the ground work and reach consensus. Your ideas about leadership. In corporate environments such leadership style is usually connected to crisis management. AFAIK FreeCAD ATM is not in crisis. In addition trying to apply such style directly, to a FOSS project, there for sure are differences involved and the same can likely be said for the outcome.
P.S. I don't have plans to discuss this further, that has already been done extensively in the past. Best to wait for the outcome, it's not that far away anyway. And to be honest, in August i am much more focused on some mountain trailing and going to the sea. Would advise others the same.
