@Donovan, thank you for a great chat, which was a *lot* of fun. It also gave me an idea for Abel's next t-shirt :)

I assume you mean Jeff "Beehler", who will be on the next Q&A as mentioned by Anisha. I would like you to ping me email (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/willy-peter_schaub/contact.aspx) and elaborate on the number of projects and especially your concerns with the quality.
Using the new triage system (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/willy-peter_schaub/archive/2014/07/30/triage-of-ideas-process-changes.aspx) the number of and selection of projects is driven by the ALM community, ALM Rangers and the Visual Studio SMEs.
The actual number of concurrent projects depends on available volunteer bandwidth, time of year and size of projects, which we have managed quite effectively over the past few months, based on the triage system.
