What's going on in the MusicBrainz community these days?

There was a very good talk about the state of the MusicBrainz community and the plans for future development on irc just now.

It went from 20:03 to 21:52 on 2006-05-04.
It started with a kind of rant by Wolfsong, developed into a discussion about what is going wrong in the MusicBrainz community these days, and led to some pretty simple steps that might help to make things better.

I just wanted to bring this to everybody’s attention, before I go to sleep. I might get to adding a short summary tomorrow, but not now, sorry.
