I think we should have poll feature for this forum. With poll feature, admin can list features that Haiku users require by collecting ideas from members’ suggestion, so that members can poll and express what they really need in Haiku now, and allow developers to focus to high priority projects. For example, admin can create poll like “Do Haiku need a package manager?”, and after that, he can create a poll “Which package manager do you want to use?” and list some applications like Packager (http://www.haikuware.com/directory/view-details/development/app-installation/packager), Synthetic Package Manager (http://www.haikuware.com/directory/view-details/development/app-installation/synthetic-package-manager), … and at the last, we develop/integrate that feature into Haiku and focus to develop that feature.
Good idea. Maybe it could be set-up so that users can also suggest ideas, like the suggestion box forum, but more organised and faster. Then, users could simply choose a rating from, say 1 to 9, so that each idea would have a popularity rating attached to it. I imagine that this will help the developers choose what to spend their generous ‘time donations’ on.
