A contributor creates issues at
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX for things that they intend
to work on, marks them as "wishlist" if not working on them
immediately, updates their status as they go on working on them. Using
hierarchical issues ("blocked by") allows you to group them in logical
blocks and see which issues need to be fixed to reach a given goal.
Each issue can also serve as a mini-documentation of the feature in
question, by including a description of the use case and test
scenarios.

Combined with a high-level overview of the general direction that
active contributors want the project to take, this is IMO the best way
of exposing the "project trajectory", in real time.
