is there a development roadmap?

I would like to get involved with future work on sphinx, and start by
understanding the current plans, especially because it looks like, based on
issue #3865 [1], there are some impending API changes that are going to
affect several projects I work on.

Is there a wiki doc or mailing list thread or something I can start with to
understand the current plans?

Thanks,
Doug

Oh man, I would love to contribute too... If you have room for a
documentarian/hobbyist Python developer, I'll be happy to take some issues.

Hi Doug,

Unfortunately we don't have any roadmaps and plans...

About #3865, it is not an intentional change.
Certainly, we're going to move logging framework to Sphinx logging API
now. But old styled warn() methods are still available. So it is only
a bug (and fixed it just now).

OK. I am available to help with testing, especially if there are changes
where you think there may be backwards incompatibility issues such as
#3865. I have quite a few doc sets with custom extensions that I can run
tests against. I will try to watch for beta releases, but if you would like
to contact me directly that is OK, too.

Wonderful, thank you so much for fixing that quickly!

Thank you for your offer. That would be nice :-)

According to our deprecation policy, we will announce and warn about
deprecation during a major version at least.
So I can promise you not break compatibility suddenly if you use
public Sphinx API.
(Of course, internal structure might be changed.)
