Hmm. How about this: you stated the premise is to generate proposals for language features, extensions, additions, whatever. If that is the only goal, then consider a web-based system: anybody can post a "feature" with a description/spec/code/whatever; each feature has threaded comments attached to it; the kicker: each feature has votes (+1/+0/-0/-1).
Gee, this sounds familiar. (Hint: starts with an R and has seven letters.) Why are we using Jitterbug again? Does anybody even submit things there, and still check the Jitterbug indexes regularly?
Okay, Roundup doesn't have voting, but it does already have priorities and colour-coded statuses, and voting would be trivial to add.
Does Roundup have a web-based interface, where I can see all of the features, their comments, and their votes? Can the person who posted the original feature/spec update it? (or must they followup with a modified proposal instead)
