To be precise, some people are actively working on getting a place in
datacenter, and some servers. Then we will have to rack them, install
them, then setup ldap, and svn and git, and build nodes, and job
dispatcher, take care of bugzilla, mirrors, various web application
( like the one who manage the maintainers ), likely forums and wiki,
some infrastructure for translaters, create the association, some
mailling lists and setup a organisation ( ie, who do what for marketing,
communication, translation, qa, testing, and using what ressources ),
try to have more server, do some test of iso creation, and ots of
various thing that I left.

Yet, you are right that we should give more information on what we are
doing, we planed to publish the roadmap once we have finished it ( this
and the Manifesto but romain have been working on this since a few days,
and I guess no one would find unusual that such a important document
take lots of time ).
