Interesting and thoughtful response, Baylink. There was one part I didn't follow, though.
But that's two pieces: turning the "vision" into a deliverable, and *then* delivering it. / FOSS tends to be weak on the first half -- because that's the half that says "it needs to be usable and workmanlike looking (if not pretty), *in addition* to working properly".
I don't fully understand what you mean here. You are saying that "turning the "vision" into a deliverable", which I gloss as "specifying it in detail", involves making sure the specification is "usable and workmanlike looking ... [and] working properly". Isn't that what the whole process of making anything is about? What else is there? Could you expand on what aspects of that are particular to the "turning the "vision" into a deliverable" part of the process?
