This is only the calendar, not the content.
For the features, the main line is DIP driven. Big changes come
from this, always. Then all the regressions, critical, major,
industry, compiler crashes, bugs.
There are also tendencies, usually started from News Group
discussions. For example since a few days the tendency is to work
on reducing the memory use. A few weeks ago it was about
templates and their cost.
Tendencies are not necessarily followed by many contributors. For
example since several weeks Wlater Bright is working on
replacing the internal data structures used in the back end, and
almost alone. Just to highlight the fact that there can be
coherant (non random) initiatives.
Then the remainings bits are indivudally driven, good willing
driven, mood driven...
for example if someone finds a problem and that he can fix it by
himself then he does.
