For example we wanted a complete revamp of Pharo3 L&F, and we wanted also a complete migration of Morph to be rendered with Athens, and reality showed that is not achievable this year... so it will wait until next one (and that does not means at all that we stopped work on that area, just that the completion of the task will take more time than expected).

In the process of adding an additional Use-Case, I ended up marking lots of small editorial improvements throughout the document. My focus was not on eliminating grammar mistakes by non-native-english authors (it was pretty good) - but more on trying to find the 'best' way to phrase something. Eliminating the sort of things that creep into my own writing until the third or fourth review, along the lines of that saying about the writing process... "The job is not done until there is nothing left to remove"
