I'm glad that maybe things might have turned a corner.

That said, over the past decade or so we've had a few bright spots and a few dark ones, so I'd feel that it's a matter of consistency over time.

This funding will allow us to hire additional support for the Community team. We’ll be opening CM roles, a second PM role on the Public Platform team, as well as additional developers and designers to help support the things we need to build.

This is excellent news but I suspect it's not just about opening up roles (which were actually quite adeptly, if not adequately filled in the past). It's about giving support to the Community Team, ensuring they have the resources on the whole, and ensuring folks are here for the long run, not just until some other department needs more funding.

Our recently-announced Q3 roadmap will stay as-is since we won't be able to grow the Community Team quickly enough to work on anything this quarter

Might not even need that for the Community Team to have an effect. Even with the existing roadmap - having more people to share the load's going to be a net positive.

One key indicator though, isn't in the roadmap. It's in rebuilding trust. There's a lot of folks who left in anger or disgust over past actions of the company. There's various issues pending that need to be addressed. Some of these things are harder than others. Other have roadblocks.

That's to say, it's awesome the company hadhas funding, but the net effect for us is dependent on how the company works over the next half decade, or decade or however long it is. All this would be for naught if this newfound re-focus on the community is forgotten with the next change of the internal political winds.
