Input Objectives

At Google we define and track progress against our goals using "OKRs" (Objectives and Key Results).  Here are most of the OKRs for the input-dev team (a couple minor KRs relating to internal projects such as future Android releases have been omitted for confidentiality reasons).  Note that these are intentionally aggressive and so we will be happy if we deliver 60%-70% of them.
