I have been kicking around ideas for proper bug tracking and feature requests. My current NO CHANGES NECESSARY idea is this...

In this forum a very rigorous standard is adopted. I (ME - TBR, THIS GUY) would take some responsibility for managing them for some length of time. A bug or feature request would look like this.

BUG - YYMMDD - Short Discription
Feature - YYMMDD - Short Discription

1) The thread would be THE ONLY thread about said bug or feature.
2) Only properly formatted threads would be "official"
3) I would (for some time) monitor these, and update every week on Mondays.
4) Bugs or features unaddressed would kick to the top of the forum on Mondays.
5) Updates would be communicated out through the same thread with a matching thread like...
6) A loose iterative development would be implemented.
* Requirements could be documented.
* Additional information gathered for the developers
* Proper evaulation
**If a bug/feature is open for a long time, it could be discarded or prioritized.
7) Testing could be more orgnized

Again, I am suggesting I (THIS GUY) take some responsibility for making this work. I can dedicate myself for some short length of time, and when it become natural, it will fly on its own.

What I can say is, the way it is now is a mess. It is unworkable for all.

It is a mess. Having this sort of record/followup on alot of things this site does would be an improvement. There is usually no sign that anyone is out there improving anything on this site. For being so heavily reliant on the community ... we arent empowered to do much. Good initiative though.
