Comments on: Request for Roadmaps
There's been a request... well, to say it more bluntly: strong community pressure to return to publishing information about our development direction and progress.
I see this has become a trend on many other software development sites: they publish a roadmap for development. Actually, I must admit that I find those documents useful as well. It helps show where things are headed and the scope of what's involved.
On some websites the roadmap is generated from the development tracking system being used. I don't really like those as much, because the summary lines are too short and mysterious, and the justifications of priorities are unclear.
So, I'll be using a single wiki page called roadmap.html... easy to update and manage. Look for the link on the REBOL.com community page.
and what about pririties page? Is it any usefull anymore? Will it be updated? Because now we have projects page, and roadmap page. I can see some redundancy here ...
Priorities, Roadmap... I think the key is 'regularity'.
Something like a Fun Friday, where even minor updates or priority shuffling gets posted.
I agree with Luis, regularity is the key.
I do remember monthly updates, which worked for some time, and then there was this update which slipped a little - and a notice that monthly status updates would be dropped for a little more open schedule.
That was the last thing we heared of it.
Carl, this is just another failure in the long series of promises. How much will we see with your roadmap and more importantly how long will it take? You continue to string others along according to a selfish timetable. When will the ribbon of reward be crossed for all those that are running your race?
well roadmap is valid only if it's kept up to date...
I know i'm killing the mood... Well it's me...
