Here is what I have so far:

As you can see, I'm classifying the milestones in three buckets.
These, of course, are debatable. There is a lot of cross-over effects.
 The enablement of a new server by Infrastructure has implications for
the community, as well as for development, and development is part of,
not different than the community, etc.  I get that.  But I think this
is an effective way to show what we've done in terms of server
migration, code work, and growing the community. A little color
doesn't hurt either.  The distinctions are artificial, but when you
think of it, even our quarterly Board reports use similar categories.

In any case, I'd love more events and dates.  For example, our 3.4
release notes are full of enhancements.  I'd love to list some more,
which I would, if I had dates.
