Looks good Janet. The only thing I thought you might want to explicitly state is something about clearly stating the perks/benefits of contributing to the community - community members will want to be clear on what the incentives are.

So perhaps something like

"Work out and implement mechanisms for giving community members perks/benefits when they contribute to WPD. Make it clear what those benefits are to prospective new members."

It seems a little weird to use a label like "Beta" for a community, but I'm taking it mean that the community is moving from the "inception" stage to the "establishment" stage of the community life cycle. A big part of that is implementing capture and tracking of metrics so we can tell which stage we're in.
