Collecting feedback

With some early help from Digg and /. the Firefox Brainstorming doc has seen thousands of revisions and has 700+ categories now.  That’s great, but its a tad overwhelming to review, and since the hits keep on coming, its becoming a massive effort just to keep up with new suggestions.

Obviously we need to do the best we can for now, but I think there has to be a better way of handling an incoming stream of ideas in such a way that people can both keep up and somewhat organize themselves.  There’s been suggestions around using something like Chirpy, and my triage-trained brain could handle a suitably modified Bugzilla, but both of those have shortcomings.

Also, if someone wanted to somehow summarize new ideas as they get added to the various sub-docs, that’d be pretty helpful in the short term.

    And when you say “there have been suggestions”, you mean “I have suggested”, right? :)

  2. Wow, that’s almost excessive. I could spend hours reading all those :)

    One way of processing the feedback would be to delegate decisions, and not check them. Usually, there are less than 5 people with an opinion that matters on a given issue. The rest are bug fixes.
