The ReactOS project is a very ambitious one, and it has always been difficult to keep rules or guidelines. This is an open source project, where every developer has the right to choose what he or she feels best about.
However, currently ReactOS reached a point, where all possible ideas, tasks, actions, changes, improvements should be collected in one place and used to track progress of development and to aid efforts of new developers.

- Ideas - contains a few very interesting ideas and prepositions from different people
- Work_In_Progress - quite outdated, but useful too
- DDraw Status
