To elaborate on this: I meant it as an experiment. To see if we could get something in place that all mayor projects seem to have: a place where humans can read whats happening.

The experiment was a success, because the outcome is very clear:
* Users want this very badly
* We dont have an infrastructure (i.e. code) to maintain something like this easy
* We dont have engineers and developers around who are willing to spend the time and effort to maintain their (or others) statuses on such a place. [1]
* So we failed to maintain such a place.


[1] This should be either by the developers themselves, or by those who understand the code and technical (drupal) jargon well enough to rephrase a set of patchesm or a module into one sentence. It is a very hard thing to do. Apparently (that roadmap was never up to date) too hard for our current way of doing stuff.
