We have a TODO page :

As Mosu said, most programs are one-man projects. But as we only deal
with open source softwares, anyone is free to contribute.

We don't really have priorities. It's only what developers would like to
work on, or what the users ask. For example I started working on the
menu system a few weeks ago because Haali wanted to work on it.

All that is on the TODO page. We'd like to support all that is there.
And if it's there, it's not done yet :)

Time, need, lack of documentation.

We are currently working on the menu and tags that are almost not
supported anywhere. There is a lot of work to do there. What I'd like is
also Wavpack support before we have all Matroska features done. Because
it will probably use a feature that is currently not used by other codec.

IRC is by far where most informations are exchanged between developpers.
And we spend a lot of time there. Otherwise the mailing lists and the
website (not for discussing but as a reference for the format). We also
keep logs of all IRC discussions :)
