- The mailing list is frankly obscure. Python community leaders and package maintainers often are not aware or do not participate in Python-ideas. Not many people know how to use or navigate a mailing list.
- No one really promotes the mailing list, you have to go out of your way to find where new features are proposed.
- Higher discoverability means more people can participate, providing their own use cases or voting (I mean using like or dislike measures, consensus should still be how things are approved) go out of their way to find so they can propose something. Instead, I envision a forum where people can read and give their 2 cents about what features they might like to see or might not want to see.
I'm not sure that's a popular opinion, but I don't think I want more people around on python-ideas.
There's enough quantity here. The problem is quality.
