The series timeline does not distinguish between active and inactive milestones

Bug Description

The series timeline shown on the project overview and series pages shows active and inactive milestones are white circles, and milestones with releases as black circles. For many people the black circle means done/inactive, not has release files. The timeline implies there are many milestones in progress when there are in fact few or none.

We might want a design for active, inactive, and released, or we could simply make all inactive milestones be black circles. The later suggestion would visualise the mileatones that are shown on bug and blueprint targeting pickers.

I've pushed a correction where inactive milestones are now filled in the color of the series timeline (either green or grey at the moment), I figured this would be a good way of displaying them as it makes them blend in more with then line and not contrast as much as releases.
To do so I added an extra param to JS function make_landmark(). This could be useful in the future for extra configuration options.

Overall the fix isn't the most elegant solution as it is a little redundant with the coloring of the series line but it works. I also might've missed something.

This is my first contribution to LP so I believe I need a contact id to fill the contributer agreement form (if this passes reviews)

As discussed on IRC, this is pointless once bug #1100164 is fixed.
