You're asking a loose nit group of some 1000+ volunteers who work
independently to produce a "road map"? That's not very likely. Even if
such a document were produced, it's no guarantee that we'll follow it,
since each item would require someone willing to do the work.

Debian hardly has release goals, and even those goals depend not only on
individual developers with no forcible guidelines, they depend on
outside groups like Xfree86, GCC, GNU/Libc, and the kernel developers.
There's just no way to put down what will be done.
