Anything that was added to that checklist that the person who added it still intends to implement should be added under a point release on the 1.15 Roadmap wiki page. My guess is that some/most of what's there is still valid, but probably not complete or up to date anymore.

I don't think it makes sense to have goals for certain 1.15 releses. We have goals for 1.16 and that's it it probably doesn't matter too much in whcih 1.15 release it will go.

What people think they can have done by when will affect when 1.16 is planned for, though. Just saying to add things that people want to have done by 1.16 doesn't really help when the actual date for 1.16 is currently still undetermined, so I'd like to decide on the 1.16 date based on when people think they can have which changes done by.

To add to that, I'm not especially bothered about whether changes end up getting implemented earlier or (to a certain extent) later than initially expected - things happen, difficulties are encountered, etc and there's no way to ever fully account for how things will end up ahead of time. What I'm trying to solve is the situation where there are lots of changes that people probably want to implement before 1.16, and that list will also probably change and grow as time goes on as well, but 1.16 does need to actually be released at some point. So if everyone adds the changes they want to do and at least a guess of when they can be done by, there will be more information available to help determine a good release date for 1.16 based on which changes it can be expected to include as well as which features will most likely end up bumped back to 1.17.

The absolute last thing I'm trying to do is lock people into dates and then get mad later when something changes, if that's a concern.

So i want do to basciaiyll 3 things:
1) The api to add features in 1.16, this is in particular the campaignd part
2) mainlining WCII, this ideally invonved some work from other in particular wrt to re-adding the dunefolk faction
3) Some api changes that in particular result in less macro usage and (hopefully) store less information in savefiles and thus easier wesnoth compatibility.

So i added these point to that wiki page, note however that the last part 'readd dunefolk to WCII' is something i probably cannot do myself.

Is there a particular person whose help you'd need, or is it a different type of problem?

No not specific person, its mostly about balance, and i'm not that good of a player myself.

I would like to get at least the Lua reorganization and map generator PR finished for 1.16, though at this moment I have no plans for when I will get work done on them. Most likely I can't get anything substantial done before November or so.

That's fine - 1.16 is still a ways off.
