Dear Gilles,

That roadmap document pre-dates the current scipy wiki(s) and is 
therefore slightly out of date in that regard.

As you note, there are two wikis, but the distinction is not 
public/private but rather user/developer. Basically, the developer site 
(the Trac instance) is for reporting and searching bugs, browsing the 
source code, and discussing the future development of scipy and numpy. 
The "user" wiki http://scipy.org is the place where we want to have the 
best user-oriented documentation, download links, news, screenshots, 
"how-to-help" pages, and so on. As far as uploading screenshots, please 
upload them directly on the ScreenShots page. We're big fans of 
editorial-decisions-by-wiki around here. If someone doesn't like it, 
it's up to them to get rid of it or modify it. And if you need 
permissions to do something you can't do, ask someone on the 
EditorsGroup page to add you to that page. My feeling is that as long as 
your information is accurate and your screenshots look half decent, 
people will appreciate that you are spending the time to contribute.
