This patch brings the timeline in develop.html back up to date with the current status of things. I presume that the "Stage 1 ends Dec 20, 2006" is appropriate, given the standard two-month timeline for such?

Looks good, thanks!


I'm not quite sure about the end of Stage 1 date. Perhaps add "(tentative)" to the date. Mark?

I'd note that the header text above the timeline already points out that future dates are tentative, so I think that would be redundant. Nonetheless, I'll wait for Mark's comment before committing.


Should this also include the State 2 and Stage 3 points on the line now, or wait until they happen?

Let's include them, without dates though, unless/until Mark provides some.

Will do; see attached revised patch.


Looking at the page, I also release that some of the past dates probably are not actually right; we apparently failed to update them. :-(

For that matter, the first two "Stage N" entries, way up at the top of the timeline, say "(ended yyyy-mm-dd)", and then after that they start saying "(ends yyyy-mm-dd)". I'm figuring that as soon as I commit this patch, I'll do up one to change all the past ones to "ended", and I suppose I could fix the dates at the same time. Any suggestions for the easiest way to find the right dates?
