I've been internet-uplugged for the last several days, otherwise I would have jumped right on this.
The ideas Pieter raises make sense. I just wish we didn't keep moving the spaces where we're supposed to be paying attention.
This same conversation could happen around bugs, feature ideas, themes, projects, patterns — what have you. But for now, let's focus on bugs.
The Community used to be the central space where Wikidot users could identify bugs. It seemed like the Wikidot dev team would monitor those, and often they'd manage to prioritize a fix.
I'm not sure why bugs then moved to the pro site. Maybe we were trying to create better defined, better prioritized lists.
I haven't focused too much on the Pieter's Tuesday invitations to rant. I'm sure we see lots of bug reports there.
In any case, there are about five different places where these bug reports linger. I agree with Helmut that the creation of a new space should involve some review of the other bug-report-infested places. Ideally, we should transfer the relevant material, and link from the old spaces to the new ones.
But fundamentally, Pieter's logic makes me think there should be two principal places to focus Wikidot and Community activity — www.wikidot.com and community.wikidot.com. If this thing Pieter describes were located in wikidot.com/bugs, then it would be clear this is the dev team's bug-squashing place.
