I'm not sure there even is one. :)

The road that is taken depends mostly on what the people working on the
code want to tackle, I guess. Looking at the -current mailing list
should probably give you an idea what is being worked on.

Personally I don't think roadmaps are all that usefull for open source
projects that depend on volunteer work. Volunteers tend to work on an
area that either scratches an itch for them or that interests them.

Generally, CURRENT is a branch to introduce changes that would be too
intrusive in the release brances or STABLE.

Other than that, you'd better ask on the -current or -hackers list.
