[ros-users] Ros Roadmap Information

I've always struggled to locate the following information every time I go

   - When are the next rosdistro releases due?
   - What platforms are they going to be running on?
   - What underlying dependency shifts are looming (e.g. python3)?

The first thing I do is google 'ros roadmap'. I just watched a colleague go
looking for the same information and also googled those exact same
keywords. Probably others do also.

What they get you at #1 is http://wiki.ros.org/ROS/Roadmap which doesn't
provide recent or new information, but is now information about a legacy
process that is not marked as legacy - confusing. And then you have to
really start digging to answer the questions above.

The information can be found from the ros main page (http://wiki.ros.org/)
under 'Distributions' which isn't entirely obvious. Important pages being:

   - http://wiki.ros.org/Distributions
   - http://wiki.ros.org/Distributions/Timeline
   - http://www.ros.org/reps/rep-0003.html (which could do with an update
   for indigo/j-turtle)

To make it more visible, can we:

   - Forward wiki.ros.org/ROS/Roadmap -> wiki.ros.org/Roadmap
   - Add links for the above to that page?
