poelcat (dump from Round #2):
NOTES: (we can use this later) (s/software and content/culture/ +11
       software, content, and culture as ...
contributors _AND_ collaborators? -> use "contributors and consumers"? - collaboration implied by "community", "creator" is a subset of "contributor"

community of users (consumers?) and collaborators.  (all 3 are collaborators)

collaborator more in the sense of "helper, aider", I think 
What if instead of classifying people, we classify what we do? "...as a collaborative community." +1


== Round #2 ==

1) To lead the advancement of free and open source software and content as a community of creators, contributors, collaborators, and consumers.

"community of <abstract noun>" sounds strange.

poelcat (dump from Round #1):
2) Become the premier community of contributors to lead the advancement of free and open source software and content. 
NOTES: again prefer culture here

3) To be the acknowledged world leader in creating and using free software and culture to empower and build a community of contribution.

poelcat (dump from Round #1):
--should we mention "Free" and "Open Source" explicitly?
