> 
> 
> Bringing together separate reviews on the intro:
> 
> ```
> The RIOT developer community has grown from a state of a few developers in
> relatively close contact to a highly distributed worldwide organisation with
> members joining continuously. As a result, passing on underlying understanding
> and assumptions that drive design decisions via word-of-mouth is no longer
> feasible. 
> 
> This document represents the consensus on a set of generalised, loose
> requirements for RIOT (in a voluntary open source context, gathering strict
> requirements is neither possible nor welcome).
> 
> The first section discusses some of the concrete [use cases](#2-use-cases)
> which RIOT is driven by, to give a broad awareness to the developer where and
> how their features will be used. Based on this bigger picture, the [design
> philosophies](#3-design-philosophies) in the second section provide specific
> guidance for design. These include a focus on constrained devices, a short
> learning curve, and the versatility to support a huge variety of devices and
> functionality.
> ```

> How does this sit with everybody?

Sounds o.k. to my ears.
