FWIW, I'm with Tom on this - it's fine to present a link to the wiki (it
really should be there, it's something we've missed), but the wiki is
*not* a replacement for the TODO list. At least not yet. (it might be at
some time in the future, but that's a completely different discussion)
The same goes for the link on the frontpage (per your other patch), I
think it's better if it goes into the developer section, or possibly
directly to the TODO list, and not to the Wiki.

I think that's the best - link to both, with a description of what is

A general change there might not be a bad idea. Though I like having the
Roadmap on it's own page - perhaps we should get rid of all those links
on the first page instead?
The whole "What will you find here" section is much a repeat of what's
in the menu on the left anyway, which doesn't make sense.
What might make more sense is to have a paragraph about "the postgresql
development model", in how we deal with patches and such in our project.
(I'm volounteering your time to write this, of course :-P)
