Drupal Roadmap, Proposal

This is a summarised and ordered version of the thread on drupal.org "battle plans". - Usability improvements [Dries, Chris Johnson]
- Change all browser-visible references to "node" to something that might make sense to someone who is not a computer geek. [Chris Johnson]
- Create a node zero feature that allows to create a custom node to be displayed to someone who visits and has no other access at all. [Chris Johnson]
- Make it possible to rename things like nodes and blogs without incurring the high overhead that locale.module incurs to do so. [Chris Johnson]
- Core (modules) - Theme system improvements. [MegaGrunt, adrian] - apart from my phptemplate based theme for 4.4.0 , i want to enable drupal to use generic templating engines (ex: smarty, xtemplate, php templates and phptal) without any problem, as well as syndication of themes/templates using the install subsystem. [adrian] - Extend xTemplate to make it possible to customised sections of a site through multiple CSS style-sheets. [MegaGrunt] - Profile module improvements [Dries, adrian]
- make the new profile module adapt to user->user relationships [adrian]
- integrate buddylist module [Adrian]
- Forum module improvements [Dries] - Aggregator module improvements [Dries] - User system imporovements [javanaut] - Have user_access() take an additional optional parameter of which uid to compare against the given access type. [javanaut] - Navigation or Configurable menus [Dries, anarcat, Bèr, JonBob]

- Internationalisation [matteo, Bèr, jareyero, Jose A Reyero] - Combine l18n, translate_node and localisation [matteo, Bèr, Jose A Reyero]
- improving translate_node.module [Bèr]
- Vocabulary and term I18n (terms and vocabularies are translated in locale) [matteo]
- Extend it to have any table translated, not only the node table [jareyero, Jose A Reyero] - Permission System [JonBob]

- Wizard system , for creating multi page submissions .. to be primarily used in the Install system [adrian]
- Make drupal more fault tolerant, for example allowing it to start up completely without needing a database connection.[adrian]
