I'd be open to tech talks or a hangout style office hour on the next set of questions... grouped by theme is a good idea.

Wwes added a comment to T117800: Common definition of a roadmap for WMF teams?.

thanks @Awjrichards and +1 @ksmith. I do think milestones could play a role for sure. The initial roadmap with the teams was a basic effort to just illustrate the need. We all have goals already and they are essentially the building blocks. Just need a clean way to show them that does not require extra work or a new process. Need to investigate if you can take a table cell from one page and essentially pass that to another and we'd be on a quick path to having a public roadmap. We posted the previous and I'm going to at least update that for the moment as we discus.
