Hey Christopher. Good that you bring this topic up. I’ve considered such tools previously, but concluded not to pursue them for a couple of reasons. However I do agree that the end users need a better way to be involved and to be able to show what’s important for them. Especially a way to show what’s most important to them. Instead of introducing additional tools with yet another user base, I thought of using our existing tool Jira and improving the accessibility and visibility part. One way to do that would be to display all issues on the website sorted by votes and with the possibility to filter by project and issue type. Along with an explanation and introduction how to participate. The goal of this is to make it possible for the community to influence what’s prioritized by showing what’s important to them, both regarding features and bugs. Planned to work on this when the website project is a bit further.
Further ideas for this is to integrate Jira for displaying ongoing projects as a roadmap similar to what all the browser vendors do.
Like @kdambekalns an additional tool requires maintenance, which we are already struggling with for our current tools. Also you’d end up with lots of duplicate content.
