Subject Re: Committer duties and information

That is an exact question that I asked at the Flex Summit specifically for
the group.

Roy Fielding had a great analogy/answer.
The main idea is that this is that we are throwing a party, not running a
business with free labor. So people need to be energized about what they
are doing, they aren't there to be given tasks.

As such there is no roadmap. You may come up with a great idea and start
working on it, then when other people see what you are doing they may join.
Over time your idea snowballs and gets added in, but this doesn't mean that
there is a formal roadmap for people to sit at and program away against.

However this is where Spoon comes in. We do have plans and roadmaps of
features we want to add. Some take time and require people. If you are
interested in our roadmap (our party) you and anyone else is free to join.

Make sense?
