The release cycle is described here:
You can find the schedule at:
And we track the set of blueprints in the current cycle at:
All those pages are linked from the main page at wiki.openstack.org.

We could do a better job at tracking long-term goals: blueprints do not
seem to be the best tool for the job. All PTLs have a pretty good idea
of where they are headed, but documenting long-term plans sounds like a
good idea. So far we've been running with urgencies, but I think we are
reaching a plateau where documenting those long-term plans makes more
sense. My suggestion would be to do that on the main project pages on
the wiki (like http://wiki.openstack.org/Nova).

PTLs could require a bit more documentation in the blueprints that
people submit, some project already do.
