Hi all, 

As a first step in my plan to get things done and move the site forward, I have created a visual roadmap table showing most critical tasks to get done, with weeks down the side so you can see who is supposed to be doing what, and when. A few points:

* Blank coloured squares below existing tasks are supposed to be an extension of those tasks, e.g. if a task is going to take 2 or 3 weeks, rather than just one. Is this intuitive, or should we just repeat the task info in each square?
* If you look into row three, you'll see a dashed border - this is to indicate a completed task
* In rows two and three you'll see there are alternating colours used for adjacent tasks, just to make it easier to see where one task ends and the next begins
* I have used a parent <div>, fixed width and overflow: scroll to create a scrolling table box, rather than just having a huge table falling off the right hand side of the screen, which would just look hideous. Is this ok? To add new content rows, you have to create a new table row and then also increase the table width a bit.
* The people I've put in the table as task owners are just examples I've used and not necessarily the real tasks owners - don't get freaked out if you weren't expecting this workload ;-)
* I've also included a brief title to describe what the task is, and link to the relevant page or bugzilla bug for more info. Does each bug need any more info?

What do we think? Ok but needs improvement? Terrible, and needs to go back to the drawing board?

Let me know asap. If you like it, please add your own tasks.
