+1 to not duplicate the work regarding jiras/the roadmap on the website.
But in the same time, I think it's important to keep on the site some info for the future releases, less concrete, more like our "vision" / themes that we would like to cover. Can be resumed to only 3 or 4 bullets points.

Hi team,

while thinking about restructuring our roadmaps, I was wondering about our existing roadmaps on [1]. Overall I'd like to have the AG roadmaps more feature driven, but that requires some more thoughts/changes?

However, here is what I am wondering about...

Most of our roadmaps we link to from [1], are really just pointing to different JIRAs.

Let's take one example, UPS:

Basically all info on the above page is present in JIRA (including the 'archived' roadmap of older releases). Since JIRA should be the central tool for planing releases, features and future versions, I think that our roadmap docs are not adding too much value, since they repeat info that is available on a different place (JIRA).

Also, maintaining the roadmaps is tedious: You make a change on the actual JIRA (e.g. move the date of a release or add a new feature). To keep the roadmap up-to-date, you put the same info on the roadmap doc and send a PR.

Can we remove these roadmap docs?

For UPS that would mean, that the link on [1] would go against:
