I'd certainly find it interesting to know what people were working on  
in other parts of the Qpid community, such as the C++ broker, Windows  
and python clients, and so on.

I'm mainly interested in the area I can contribute most to - the Java  
broker - and I'm sure other developers have similarly restricted  
specialties (and not enough time!) so it's rare for me to be  
investigating or learning about other parts of the project. The  
constant stream of JIRAs being created are obviously part of this,  
but often they won't have enough information for someone who doesn't  
have an in-depth knowledge of the relevant code, and weight of  
numbers means it's hard to sift out the important issues from minor  
bug-fixes. This is not just useful to avoid wasted work and point out  
areas where we can work more closely, but also just to gain insight  
into the bigger picture.

Also, at the very broad-brush level, would it be possible for someone  
to create the 'Roadmap' page for the new web-site? It is part of the  
template - just commented out - and would be fairly simple to write.  
At the moment, for instance, I'm working on 0-10 protocol version  
exception handling in the Java broker. I think that one Roadmap item  
should be, say, full 0-10 protocol compatibility across all brokers,  
and this work obviously forms part of that. It would be good for both  
developers *and* end users to at least see some of the list of  
features that everyone is committed to for the next release.

I would have thought this information is probably public knowledge  
for people who have been developing on Qpid for much longer than me?  
But, because it's not collated in one place yet, but it means new  
people can't easily tell what is being worked on and what needs  
attention and is unloved.
