Haiku does not have a roadmap.

You are most likely referring to this:

http://haiku-os.org/learn.php?mode=status

This is just a development status chart on a kit basis. Addmitted by the project members themselves, this chart is not even up to date.

dcibils indeed didn't refer correctly to Haiku roadmap, but it's not true it doesen't have one.
The page you linked (and the one dcibils was referring too indeed) shows the status of parts, towards Haiku first goal: R5 compatibility.

Having a roadmap means having defined plans for the future, and Haiku does have ideas on how to go beyond the first release.

Given the development model of SkyOS, I'd also like to know what is the readmap to the first release and if there are already ideas for the future - or if it's just too early to think about it.
Maybe someone has a link? ;)

For a roadmap to be meaningful, it should show milestones and target dates (that can be adjusted over time if needed).

R5 compatibility may be a goal for Haiku 1.0, but to pretend that that alone is a roadmap for the project is a bit too simplistic (IMHO). Here is a good example:

http://www.mozilla.org/projects/firefox/roadmap.html

Does Haiku have such a roadmap?
