That would be possible if we usually have a clear plan of how (and when) are
going to be things done, but that is almost never that way. Some stuff does
not depend on us and even about of the stuff that depends on our work can not
be scheduled. You can plan doing foo in some evening but then you get
something better to do. You do not have this not even in companies were you
And no, we are not going to twitter or something like that, if you are so
interested in the development, you will have to follow the development as it
happens (mailing lists, IRC, commit messages), the developers are not going
to follow you.
