From what I can see, the Ubuntu system is pretty similar in its

capabilities to the KDE Forum system, although the KDE system seems to
focus on idea while the Ubuntu (or ideatorrent, which it is based on)
seems to be focused on problems and solutions.  However, ideatorrent
does not appear to support user-specified tags.

openSUSE also has openFATE, which is an idea management system:  It has user-specified tags like the
KDE system, but also has a tag cloud.  One big difference is that all
ideas show their status for particular releases (unconfirmed,
accepted, rejected, implemented, etc), so you can tell whether the
idea is going to be make it into a particular release or not.


I tried the openSUSE but for some reason it wouldn't load. Of the two Ubuntu
and KDE, I prefer the KDE treatment of ideas as the focus is the idea,
voting is on the idea only, member discussions are not voted on. I
personally feel that if the idea is adopted by devs then they would want to
read through the particular member discussions to get a better feel for the
idea and convincing arguments for or not the impementation as well as
suggested fixes left by members.

I am not sure if there is a follow through with the idea. Let's say if
adopted, does the KDE idea then report back on the status of completion of
the idea?


It is integrated into the forums, so the normal thread watch features
apply.  I will see if there is any way to get more robust
notifications, it is a good idea.
