Is there a threshold number they're trying to reach?
There's no specific number we need per se. I would feel comfortable with 10,000. Another important driver is the community support. We have over 40+ websites and podcasts that are supporting the effort in some form. I've listed those out in the right sidebar (and will be adding a lot more).
If anyone on these boards owns a website or blog, please add the link to expand the reach. Let me know so I can add your site to the supporter list. The more individual names + sites, the better!
