I've put together a Roadmap proposal under:

Any feedback is welcome. Some of the points are not to be read as: go
ahead and implement, but rather look into it for it's feasibility.

If there are no objections or comments I'd basically call the roadmap
silently as accepted. For each point I think it'll be good to create
bugs so we can track progress.

I've not read it in details and mostly skimmed through.

I got intrigued by a specific point though: moving the manual to
github. Really?
I'm sorry for the misunderstanding caused by my poor organisation of the
wiki page. This is not part of the roadmap, but is part of our list of
ideas. As such, I think it is valid to raise and think about; talk about
it's pros and cons. But that's all what it is so far - an idea asking if
it would bring any benefits.

I know several (all?) of GNOME's repos have already
been *mirrored* to github. Personally I find it acceptable if repos
are just mirrored (that's after all one of the point of git as a
"distributed" revision control), but not if it is to be considered the
new main repository of the project. github is just another of these
platforms led by a company, just like was Sourceforge (and now look,
with time, all projects are fleeing it, just as we did), and like will
be some other "fashionable" platform in the future. So I say, we keep
control of the main repo. And if a github mirror had to be created,
that would only be to profit of its network effect (why not), but it
must be soon clear to new contributors that they must sync with the
GNOME repo in the end, not the github one.

Was that what you were proposing? If so, ok.

+1 from me.

Why would you move to github? I agree with everything Jehan said.

I've never considered it in such a detail. So well said. I couldn't
agree more.

I've moved our ideas on to a separate page to make the key points for
the next release (3.0) more readable.

Cheers for the feeback!
