Hi Ian, *

Establish a simple Forum called proposals.

I'd prefer a sortable list at the wiki / website with columns for name, date and 
proposal (up to 100 char), link to description, bug entry (if already filed),
number of votes, necessary resources and proirity. 

The two latter columns will have to be editable only by SC.

People with ideas post an outline proposal to a list limited to say 1000
characters. TDF committee review the list every month say and short list
priorities to gather further information. If something looks feasible
and is a high priority LO officials approach the relevant parties. 

It occurs to me that this would provide more focus to the discuss list
which often seems to do a lot of discussion without much scope for
outcome. It wouldn't replace the discuss list, just provide a logical
extension to give project ideas more chance of happening.

But this should not replace the discussions on the list - only finalized proposals
 should be presented to validation / priorization. 

The list I mentioned might be created automatically from feature-request bugs
(after revision / approval)

This would keep the workflow, involve the developers and  decision maker in an
open and comprehensive way.

Best regards
