Thanks for posting. I think communication and transparency are a great way to keep the community onside. In this respect it is a bit of a shame that the community issue roadmap is not being kept up-to-date - http://www.magentocommerce.com/roadmap/issue-roadmap (it should be automated). Is this something you can chase up?

I joined Magento two months ago as the Community Manager and I can assure you that I am listening to your concerns. My door is always open and please feel free to message me directly with any comments or feedback. I cannot address all the issues in this post, but I\’ve been keeping very close tabs on our community the last couple of months and we\’re making changes to make a better Community for everyone. These things won\’t happen overnight, obviously—and I won\’t send you a list of promises—but I am listening, and my virtual door is always open.
Hi Ross, yes—I’ve seen that talked about quite a bit. I’m not sure why it wasn’t updated or who stopped—there’s been a lot of changes around Magento and it is possible that this was handled by someone who changed roles (although I’m not 100% sure) -
I agree about the transparency more than you know
This is for sure on my tackle list. I’ll give you updates as they become available.
