Drupal doesn't have a roadmap, but should probably consider it a bit harder.

    Drupal's Roadmap: The Magic 8 Ball Drupal's Roadmap: The Magic 8 Ball Presentation Transcript

    • Magic 8 Ball
      • by: Ryan Cross (rcross)
      • http://drupal.org/user/35936
      I help with the Australian community, contribute docs/support and a couple patches
    • Drupal’s Future
      • When is the next release?
      • What is going to be in it?
      • What are we working on now?
      • How do we know if we’re making progress
      These are common questions and often can be critical for project managers Text
    • Vision
      • Work is most effective when everyone has the same goal
        • Easy to measure progress and success vs failure
      • Everyone has to agree to it
      • It has to be communicated to everyone
      • It needs to be simple and clear
      • Vision provides the goal (roadmap)
    • No RoadMap
      • Code Talks & Bike Shed Walks
      • Survival of the fittest (?)
      • Easier to do time-based release schedule instead of feature-based
      • Things people want to work on get done
      • Competition vs Collaboration
      • How to measure success?
      • Sub-projects of Drupal starting to make their own roadmaps (Aegir, Docs, Pantheon, etc)
      Pros Cons http://buytaert.net/roadmap
    • Defined RoadMap
      • Easy to measure if the project is making progress
      • Clear about what to work on at any given moment
      • Less competition, easier decision making
      • Stifles innovation?
      • No working on stuff outside the roadmap?
      Pros Cons http://willy.boerland.com/myblog/why_drupal_needs_a_roadmap
